(C. moschata) 100 days Introduced to America about 1860 by James Hogg of Yorkville, New York, from seeds his brother Thomas sent him from Japan. We are so happy to reintroduce this piece of American history. The beautiful fruit are very flat, ribbed and dark-green-to-tan in color. The orange flesh is dry, fine-grained and sweet. Listed by both Burr (1863) and Vilmorin (1885). RARE!

What are the pros? Taste, production, storage

What are the cons? Almost invasive

Review:

Grown in NW Arkansas, this squash took over half of my garden and one vine went 10-12 feet up a neighboring tree. They produced about 30 squash on two plants, and they stored well; the last one was eaten in December and it was still firm and tasty. They're quite hollow and the meat is thin, but man... the taste was amazing. Sweet, nutty, with a hint of butter nut and punkin. They make a great soup, although the green edible hyde makes the final product a little off-putting in color. Best slowly sauteed in a little ghee and a pinch of salt.

What are the pros? Beautiful

What are the cons? Flavor, texture

Review:

I was super excited about this squash and have quite an obsession with trying different kinds of winter squash. I thought this one was beautiful and I had never heard of it before so I had to try it. It didn't produce prolifically but this is north Idaho so it would quite likely do better elsewhere. I did yield some though. Unfortunately they seemed rather watery and bland to me so I won't bother with them again.

What are the pros? Easy, delicious, beautiful

What are the cons? None

Review:

2015 was the first year I grew this squash in my zone 8 rainy climate. I was apprehensive as I had read mixed reviews. I found it easy to germinate indoors in seed starter. I transplanted outdoors in May to a highly organic hugelculture garden deeply mulched. These plants had the option of extending toward long hours of sun one way or under the near complete shade of a fruit tree the other way. They all chose the shade and climbed high up in to the tree. Fruit were huge and beautiful. I harvested in early autumn in with fair yields (3-4 large fruit per plant). The fruit is light, buttery, and sweet. I will definitely be growing them again this year.

What are the pros? Love the look

What are the cons? didn't taste good

Review:

This squash produced much better than I expected for our short season northern climate. I was very happy with the beautiful look of this squash. Some of the squash sat on the vine and seemed like it had plenty of time to mature. However, the flavor of this squash was very bland. I waited to see if the flavor would get better in storage. It got slightly better, but still does not taste that great. Amy Goldman in her book, The Compleat Squash, also says that the flavor is not that good. I wish that I'd listened to her instead of William Woys Weaver. Out of the huge variety of plants that I grew this year, I only had two disappointments and this was one of them.

What are the pros? Sweet, survived borer invasion

What are the cons? None

Review:

The plants are tough and produce well. I planted five varieties. Almost everything else was wiped out by the squash borers but this and one other variety fought them off. Good production, very sweet squash, but not as starchy as the Chiriman squash, which was the other one to survive but which didn't produce as much. Seems like a dependable variety.
