(C. mixta) 110 days 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:

My family traveled extensively when I was a child and they brought back "Pipian" seeds from south America in the early 80s. We grew them in Texas with amazing results. Never thought to eat the seeds, but we ate the squash. Pick them young slice them, batter and fry them they are incredible. Let them mature and slice and dice boil with butter salt and pepper and it's as good or better than any zucchini. I will try the seeds when mine mature this year. They grow in almost any soil. This will be my first year growing them in the mountains, but in central texas, and east texas they flourish.

Review:

I put these in with gourds and decorative squash in my farm market, Adds a unique (nothing else come close to this pattern) decorative item. Grows well in all conditions. 2014 was cool and had extreme disease on curcubits; still harvested these. Stored better than pumpkins.

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?

What are the pros? No pests, lots of fruits!

What are the cons? none

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.
