(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? very tasty

What are the cons? enormous vines

Review:

These did very well in our long, hot summers. The pumpkins were great roasted, baked and mashed, and grated and fried into fritters. The vines were so vigorous though that they pulled one of the trellises off the side of the house. Lots of room is needed for this variety.

What are the pros? Resists squash borer

What are the cons? None

Review:

To date, the Seminole Pumpkin is my favorite squash. It has a mild, sweet flavor and can be roasted, or pureed to make soups and pies. Personally, I find it easy to grow (but, I live in Florida and it is a native species here).

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.

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.
