(C. maxima) 95 days A delicious heirloom from Oregon; excellent flavored deep orange flesh is very sweet. Fruit are large and flattened in shape (somewhat like a Rouge Vif D'Etampes). Skin color is beautiful deep sea blue-green. Our family grew this one more than twenty years ago when we used to live in Oregon.

What are the pros? Sweet, great keeper

What are the cons? Only 2 squash per plant

Review:

Just had to write a review about this wonderful winter squash. It is March 12th and I just cooked my last 22 lb. Sweet Meat. I was concerned before I cut it open, that I had waited too long. We have been eating sweet meat all winter and just now have more room in freezer. Makes the best pumpkin pie and desserts. Great wonderful side dishes too. No other winter squash is as sweet or so versitile. Downside - We only get two squash per plant so always grow at least 6 plants. You need a lot of space if you want more than two squash.

My new favorite squash

What are the pros? Excellent flavor, texture

What are the cons? low yield

Review:

This is by far the most delicious and flavorful winter squash I have ever tasted, let alone grown. The color of the flesh is like that of a cantalope, is rich and smooth, the aroma is absolutely amazing - not unlike a melon, and is pleasantly sweet. We have baked like other squash, but I prefer it cut into 1 inch cubes, (steamed briefly in microwave or stove top), sauteed in butter with apples and a pinch of cinnamon. My new favorite way to eat this squash. Seems to be a good keeper, but the yield from three hills was only 6 so - and we just ate the last one in the first week of December.

What are the pros? Great in all areas

What are the cons? Germination could be better

Review:

Three years in a row the Oregon Sweet Meat squash is the best of all the varieties grown alongside it (Blue Hokkaido, Boston Marrow, Red Kuri, Georgia Candy Roaster and Baby Blue Hubbard). First a tip for germination: I have noticed that each year the seeds tend to germinate much later than the others, be patient with this variety and you will be rewarded with a most vigorous and healthy squash vine. It is by far the largest vine with the most flowers and can take the heat on a hot day. Most rewarding however are the squash themselves which taste like a sweet potato. We enjoy them baked, made into ravioli filling or in soup. The flavor improves with a few months of proper storage. Expect about four to five squash per vine and give it plenty of room! Dont be deterred by the sluggish germination and give this truly excellent variety a try.

What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? None

Review:

I grew two mounds, and harvested 6 large squash. I wish production was higher, however the flavor is excellent. This squash makes both terrific savory and sweet dishes. I have to cut it with a small handsaw, but this contributes to the squash lasting an extended period of time in storage. I love how this squash looks and tastes, and will always grow it.

What are the pros? Never found out.

What are the cons? Great food for squash bugs.

Review:

I live in Michigan's fruit belt, but Gerber baby products is here, too. There are thousands of acres of squash planted and squash bugs find my organic garden like a supermarket. This plant proved to have to chance to fight them off. Ignore this review if you don't have a squash bug problem.
