(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? 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.

What are the pros? Laughs at powdery mildew

What are the cons? None

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!

What are the pros? fast growing

What are the cons? too many male flowers

Review:

I agree with the reader before me who said that their vines are only giving male flowers. Very disappointing. I read up on this and it may be because of too much fertilizer in the soil. I am having the same problem. Next season I may mix the soil with some sand and see if this helps.
