110 days (C. maxima) Oblong, teardrop-shaped, slate-blue colored fruit weigh 9 lbs. each. It has thick orange flesh that is sweet and tasty. An excellent keeper, this variety was popular in Missouri and Iowa back to at least the 1840's, believed to be of Native American origin, possibly from Mexico; it was introduced commercially by Hiram Sibley & Co. of New York in 1887.

What are the cons?
Got a good crop from these in the UK this year (8 from 1 plant) despite wet and cold spring hampering pollination. Useful shape for keeping as long round limits exposed inner flesh. Good flavour & fine texture, much like a Crown Prince, but seems to need longer to develop sugars. Not as good as Queensland Blue though, and still behind the Marina Di chioggia
