(C. maxima) 90-100 days A large, gorgeous peach-colored squash from 'down under' that has extra-thick, orange flesh that's of excellent quality; perfect for pies and baking. The 15-lb. fruit keep for a long period. Very rare Australian heirloom. So beautiful and attractive.

Review:

For the past 5 years these are the only pumpkins that I will grow for cooking. They really aren't anything extraordinary to look at...kinda squat and brownish orange but boy do they have a great flavor. They have a good amount of flesh to them, cook up easy and have a nice texture when pureed. (That includes the smaller ones and the ones I wasn't quite sure were ready when the kids picked them.) I have been able to keep these for about 3-4 months in the garage no problem. Usually I bake them in the oven and then puree them. Once they are cooled I freeze them in 2 cup portions for easy cooking later on. Makes great pumpkin bread, pie and soup. I haven't had any problems growing these in my region.

What are the pros? many squash on each vine

What are the cons? nothing yet

Review:

I grew these in between the corn and they did very well, very hot summer for us in NH and not much rain so they were early to mature. Baked my 1st one and am very happy with amnt of flesh. I bake all my squashes because the flavor is not boiled away. I will try to save a few to see how long a keeper they are since this was my best performer. My favorite squash is still any type of butternut but didn't get that many this year so this could take top spot on my list.

Review:

Punkin, I would use them like a pumpkin for the most part. Since many have not had good luck keeping these a long time, you could puree some and freeze them, and you could cube some to use as a side dish.
