(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? Easy to grow.

What are the cons? none.

Review:

This pumpkin grew very well for me. I got about 10 pumpkins from a hill and I would have probably had more if the deer hadn't repeatedly eaten the plants when they were young. But they did recover nicely every time and I still got enough pumpkins. Definitely will grow again!

What are the pros? bad soil, little rain - grew!

What are the cons? large seed cavity

Review:

Our new place had no topsoil, lots of gravel, and compaction. I pickaxed a garden space, planted bush beans the first season. By the second season I had incorporated mulch into the soil. These were planted and grew! And grew, and grew, rooting at every node. The vines eventually got powdery mildew, but they grew six beautiful teardrop-shaped pumpkins. Tan after curing, they were stored under a bed. They made great pies and mashed squash, even roasted the seeds. My only dislike(besides the hugeness of the vines) is the ratio of meat to cavity. These are delicious and hardy as heck - just need to be bred for more meat. Anyone with difficult growing conditions should consider giving these a try.

What are the pros? very productive

What are the cons? none

Review:

Just an update to my previous reviews. My harvest was at the end of April begining of May it is almost September all in storage in my pantry still look and taste as good as when I harvested them. Do not refridgerate whole they seem to rot really fast. These are deffinetly designed for hot climates (tropical and sub-tropical) took some seed north to upstate New York and they didn't even germinate. They seem to like Florida's hot and humid environment which makes sense since they are from here.

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 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.
