(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.

What are the pros? Borer resistant
What are the cons? none
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!

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.

Despite a miserably hot and dry East Tennessee summer with no watering after they came up, these boogers never slowed down a bit. The vines reached 35 feet and had no disease whatsoever compared to the Walthams, which were eaten up with powdery mildew. Undoubtedly the most vigorous and hardy squash I've ever seen. We planted them between our wide Bloody Butcher corn rows, and in a month and 1/2 they completely smothered out the foot tall sea of weeds around them. :) The fruits aren't large (3 lbs was the limit), and the plants admittedly didn't set a bunch (maybe 2-3 per plant), but given that many of the local gardeners' squash simply burnt up in the heat, I'd say they did pretty good. I can't recommend this variety enough for reliability in awful conditions. :)

My favorite winter squash yet! Hardy variety that grew rampantly all summer long and set much fruit beginning in early August (8-10 per vine). These pumpkins are great to eat and a perfect size for two servings. This variety was not bothered by dry weather or any insects. I will be planting it yearly from now on.

My first packet of seed didn't sprout, but it was replaced (free, thank you) and the second packet grew well. I think it would have been more productive if it had gotten an earlier start since our zone 5 season is not very long. Neverheless, this was the best tasting of the 5 pumpkins I grew this year. Incredibly sweet smooth flesh. It did not keep well and by January, had begun to get pretty dry, now it's chicken food. Perhaps a longer ripening season will help that, and I'll definitely try this one again.
