(C. mixta) A lovely 6-lb round squash that has fine white and green stripes! Very easy to grow, and the long vines produce an incredible amount of fruit here! We collected this variety near Tuxpan, Mexico, from a gentleman at a roadside stand; he said this variety is grown for its large, tasty seeds that are used in Mexican desserts and other foods. These fruit are very seedy with loads of big white-skinned seeds that have silver rims. Inside the skin, they are filled with tender, nutty seeds that are great raw and superb roasted!

Review:

This was my first year to grow these squash. I just harvested my squash today. Has any one eaten the meat of the squash? Everyone says the seeds are great but how about the squash it's self? Should I bother cooking them?

Review:

I grew this at Toledo Botanical Garden, I got loads of fruits from 6 vines. The vines are long and while the fruits are small they are full of large seeds. The fruits and seed are very colorful. The seed is large, and of high taste quality when baked. This plant did very well with minimal care and organic practices! Still harvesting in October.

This is a cute squash, taste, not so good, but the seeds! They are huge with a nice rim of silver grey, unlike anything I had seen before and taste good too.

Review:

I love roasted squash seeds, it's the best part about Halloween pumpkin carving. I wanted to love these. The seeds were abundant, easy to clean and attractive, but the flavor was only so-so. They weren't too unpleasant, but I'd rather grow squash that have good eating flesh and fewer, smaller seeds, and roast those. I gave samples to everyone who would indulge me, no one raved, and no one asked for a second try. I tried them once, I think that's enough.
