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 pros? Low maintenance

What are the cons? Hard to tell when mature

Review:

These squash are some of my favorite as far as flavor and texture go. They're dense and a little savory but just sweet enough. Pan fried in butter, topped with fresh picked cranberries and a touch of honey they are a perfect substitute for oatmeal. The seeds add a bonus crunch and flavor. They did pretty well in a warm summer (for AK) with some cool nights and very dry conditions. I had to harvest too soon and they didn't keep at all, though. I didn't think they were going to produce and then, suddenly I had fruits on all my plants. They got to a good size pretty quickly. I think they'll be a little challenging to tell when they're completely mature. I'll be trying these again and treating them better! In the meantime, suggestions for a winter squash that is less day sensitive than most would be awesome...

Review:

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
