95 days (C. maxima) 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? delicious fruit
What are the cons? none
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!

Excellent yields of Sweet Meat squash in Colorado (z4b/5a) where summer nights often are in the 40F's or even upper 30s - cool summers where "warm season" crops get barely 100 days to ripen. Sweet Meat continues to sweeten in storage, turning a pale apricot color at its peak. Very sweet with very smooth pulp. Storage life of 4-6 months. Vines are 12-20 feet long so give it plenty of room in the garden. Sweet Meat is one of our all-time favorites.
