(C. moschata) 105 days A popular 19th century Pennsylvania variety that is still grown in many Amish communities. Sometimes called "Neck Pumpkin" because of its long, flesh-filled neck. It kind of resembles a giant butternut squash with a very long neck; they can reach 20 lbs in size! The flesh is superb, being deep orange and richly flavored, making it so popular with Amish wives for making their delectable pumpkin pies, butters and other desserts. A favorite of ours and a good keeper.

What are the pros? Resist vine bore, store, taste

What are the cons? Long vines, low # fruit

Review:

Gave up on summer squash d/t vine borers, these are very resistant. Planted late March along with Butternut and Seminole, 3 started plants each. Harvest 2 x 5 pounders in June, 2 more in July 8 pound Butternut, and 4 more 1 butternut so far in Aug (these are half the previous size/weight). Lots of vines compared to number of developed squash - 1 vine 50' long. Lost 1 of these and 1 Seminole d/t buried in vines/leaves, rot at stem end before realized attached to dead section of vine. More are growing on the vines. I cut the bulb off, slice neck lengthwise, remove seeds and 'strings' from bulb, season neck and bulb with butter and variety of home grown herbs, wrap in aluminum foil, bake at 350 until tender (about 2 hours for large ones) then enjoy.

Review:

I love this pumpkin, it is easy to grow and gets heaps of fruit, but I am having trouble with the blossom end rotting before the ;pumpkin is mature. The flower is so tight I think the bees have trouble getting in to it. I have tried hand polinating and that seems to work. If anyone can give me some advice I would appreciate it.

Review:

I grew 3 hills, each hill being 3 feet in diameter and about a foot high, with lots of rabbit manure and a cup of Azomite. I planted the seeds about ten inches apart and about an inch deep after soaking the seeds for about a half an hour. I planted 3 seeds in two of the mounds and 1 in the third mound. I mulched around the mounds with about 6-8 inches of grass hay. All of the seeds germinated. They grew like gang busters. After they had already started flowering the rains stopped. We went five or six weeks with no significant rain. There was no lack of pollinators with bumblebees, honey bees and different types of wasps and flies. Out of the seven plants I ended up with 37 squash that I kept. And four that got rotten spots on them that the pigs were thankful for. Even though my area of the country is notorious for squash vine borers they did not bother these olants- I've been told that is true for other squashes in the moshata family as well.
