(C. moschata) 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.

Not as good as butternut

What are the pros? Resistant to vine borers

What are the cons? Not very productive

Review:

I tried this as an alternative to butternut, but it just doesn't produce, taste, or keep as well as Waltham butternut. This is a moschata type, so it's resistant to vine borers.

What are the pros? prolific, dependable, stores

What are the cons? gets huge

Review:

Ok so this is an update to my previous review. It is early may and I just harvested this season's crop. We had a very mild winter with a few nights of frost followed by extremely hot days. The plants leaves shriveled with frost but quickly came back with new ones to continue into flower and fruit. I have to say again this is one of the easiest plants I have ever grown here. Some early fruits got knock off the vine and ripened fine left in a sunny window. The rest I pet ripen on the vine. My harvest is made up of squash from 8" diameter to 34" diameter. Some are huge bigger than any other time. This plant took over my whole garden which is approximately 40x20. Amazingly it kept out weeds but did not suffocate existing plants. Our days got up 90 this week with no effects to the fruit or plant. These make the best pumpkin pie and grilled slices are awesome. I have one ons shelf in my pantry as an experiment that has been there for almost 2 years. Eat young or mature! Must have.

What are the pros? grows super easy

What are the cons? take up a lot of space

Review:

Grows pretty much year round here in south Florida which I'm not to surprised since it is a native. I haven't found a squash until now that resists powdery mildew and bugs like this one. If you live in Florida and grow organic you need this one. Very tasty especially in soup as chunks or pureed. We grew this in three distinctly different micro climates in our area and it did awesome

What are the pros? Borer resistant

What are the cons? none

Review:

We love this squash! It's flavorful if you pick it early as a round zucchini or late as a pumpkin. Vine borer resistant and we have a heck of a time with them!

Review:

We've been growing Seminole on and off for years. Needs a longer 110 plus day season. when matured and cured right we have had them store a year and a half, no exaggeration. Quality is slightly compromised after a year. They need dry, room temp storage with a little air circulation. A dark closet off the kitchen works for our friends.. We first stored them in a cold room, but they didn't hold up at all. Pretty prolific 6-8+ per spreading plant. Will take over your garden as the vines set roots as it grows and re-establishes itself. Watch excessive nitrogen (manure) or you'll have all vine and no squash. Not as bothered by borers.
