(C. moschata) 120 days The wild squash of the Everglades. The round, lightly ribbed 3-lb squash have tan skin. The sweet flesh is deep orange, dry and of good quality. The productive vines are resistant to insects and disease. Found growing wild in Florida by early Spanish settlers, it can now only be found in remote parts of the Everglades.

What are the pros? Store long and produce early

What are the cons? Need more room to grow more

Review:

Many companies sell what seem to be hybrids of these. Baker creeks seem true. I stored some for almost a year. I had no problem with bugs or disease. They handled the scorching Florida uv radiation perfectly. I can't say the flesh is the best but was very good. I found it better for soups than pies. From seed to pumpkin was very early. I tried the little green unripe pumpkins and found I like to eat those the most leaving mature pumpkins for seed collection and winter storage.

What are the pros? tolerates squash very well

What are the cons? Require a large space

Review:

From two plants, I harvested 25 pumpkins that average 2.5 lbs. each. Squash bugs are horrible in my garden, but the Seminole pumpkin doesn't seem to be bothered by them even when the bugs are literally living all over the lush green growth. I actually cut the green leaves covered in squash bugs and fed them to the chickens who loved them! The plants do require a lot of space, but I just let them go and stepped over the vines. They didn't seem to mind that at all. I do have an abundance of squash bugs now, but I'll continue feeding them to the chickens, then spray soapy water on the remainder once the vines are all gone. Overall, this is a good plant for a very humid zone 7b garden, and I will plant them again next year. Thank you rareseeds.com for giving us the opportunity to buy these less common seeds.

What are the pros? none

What are the cons? insects and drought sensitive

Review:

Boy, were these a big disappointment. I was so excited when I heard about these native Floridian squash, one of them being their nearly perennial nature. Well, the seemed to come up easily enough, but they got eaten by caterpillars, and finally succumbed to drought after I was out of town for a week. So much for being a no brainer to grow. I am tempted to try again, being stubborn the way I am, but I'm not hopeful.

What are the pros? easy to grow

What are the cons? not enough female flowers

Review:

I am writing my second review of this plant. Although I only got one fruit on my vines, I have to say that it was really delicious. I think our weather may have been a factor as it rained heavily every day this summer. I will try growing them again this year, and start them earlier. I think everyone should give them a try.

Review:

This is the first year I have grown squash. I grew Seminole Pumpkins and North Georgia Candy Roasters. Both were started in small pots on my porch in July and later transplanted. I did not fertilize, did not weed, and watered every other day. The Seminole Pumpkin was a MACHINE. Its vines sprawled across the ground, putting out new pumpkins frequently--long after the Candy Roasters had set one fruit per vine and succumbed to powdery mildew, the Seminole Pumpkins continued to spread and set new fruit. Eventually they passed through the fence and were discovered by the chickens, so I had to pick them while most were still green. Overall the chickens and I got about 8-10 pumpkins per vine. As of today, the pumpkins have all ripened and are storing nicely in my warm kitchen. They are the perfect size for 2 large servings; when roasted, they have a fine texture and the flavor is great. I will be growing these in MUCH larger quantities next year!
