(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.

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.

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.

Review:

The picture above doesn't due this squash justice. It is beautiful in person. I planted two mounds (3 plants each) this year amongst corn and beans, and so far I have 7 squash fruits growing quickly. I expect more to set before I start removing new fruit a month before first frost. Even with the significant shade from the corn these babies are growing well, they have huge leaves, and are spreading like crazy. One vine has escaped and is 12 feet outside the edge of the garden, but the more the merrier. I grew these last year as well and the taste is excellent. Great substitute for pumpkin in pies and breads!
