(C. mixta) 110 days Grown for its beautiful, delicious seeds that are very large and white with silver edges, hence the name. The fruit are round-to-pear-shaped, and are white with green stripes; attractive for decorations and great for seeds. A unique squash that is still popular in some parts of Mexico.

What are the cons? none

Review:

In my Austin 8b garden, these are impervious to squash bugs. Vine borers will attack, but with no effect. Growth never stops. I use these in any way I would use Zucchini, picking them small and tender from early summer to end of season. Occasionally I find one that has grown past fresh eating stage. Stored over winter, flesh is thin and fibrous, and keeps practically forever. I have even set them outside in the garden hoping they would break down over the winter, but finally had to break them open with a shovel. Flowers are huge and attract bees, bumble bee and other pollinators. Other uses: 1) Sliced young squash is dried to use in winter soup. 2) 1/4 to 1/2 inch slices, sauteed in butter for sandwiches with melted cheese. 3) When seeds are forming, but hulls are still very soft, they're still very good to eat as part of the squash. 4)Seeds with hulls just starting to harden, no longer palatable, are pulverized in a blender and strained to make a seed cream and used in soup.

Review:

We grew these with no experience. First time out ,we did nothing to help these survive. We suffered through a summer in Virginia with little rain and constant 90+ degree days and humidity. We did not spray for anything. These little guys thrived!
