(C. maxima) 95 days. Here is a smaller strain of Candy Roaster from northern Georgia. This type of squash is famous among the people of the Southeast. Pink, banana-shaped fruit has a blue tip and weigh around 10 lbs. Delicious, smooth orange flesh is perfect baked, fried and makes great pies; hard to find and quite beautiful.

What are the pros? from little to big

What are the cons? grows out of your gardendouble

Review:

If you love sweet {cucumbers} pick when they are a foot long taste better than one to me and the kids.My wife purchased a air fryer this year so we cut some of the huge ones up in small cubes and you would have thought you were eating homemade fried {potatoes}.I boiled them mashed them and everyone thought it was {sweet potatoes}.My wife made {pumpkin} pie out of them.While i cut the big ones up my kids ask for them raw in a bowl and they call them crunchy {carrots} My wife says this is her favorite thing i grow and believe me i grow lots of things.The plants stated in my garden and grew out close to 20 feet out of all 4 corners and it will root to the ground all down the plant so dont try to pull or cut around it my plants died in the garden but still lived another 2 months in the yard these things store for along time i have just used one last week i picked it about 5 months ago

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Very long vines

Review:

These squash made delicious pies! They are great just baked too! I'm going to try substituting these in place of sweet potatoes for a casserole. I planted these pretty late and they took off and did well. They do need a lot of room as the vines are long. Mine was probably around 20 feet and that was with a late start! Definitely going to be growing more of these! Highly recommend!

What are the pros? Incredible yields, loves heat

What are the cons? Space intensive, heavy feeder

Review:

I made a new raised bed filled with lots of loose, dark amended compost, and gently planted two small NGCR starts (I don't direct seed anymore, our springs have become too unpredictable). Then, we had one very hot, fairly wet summer - and between the heat, rich warm soil and a lot of very good liquid organic fertilizer, these plants absolutely *exploded* and took over the garden. I kept expecting something to go wrong! Critters ate most of the buttercups and delicata; squash bugs killed my Hubbards last year - but I really lucked out. Well, sort of: because the vines traveled everywhere, and are very prickly, and my skin reacts badly to squash stems, I could not weed most of that garden all summer! But I kept feeding them, put cardboard under the developing fruits, and harvested >20 squash per plant from 4lbs to 15lbs. Truly unbelievable for New England. Neighbors can't believe I have over 200lbs of squash from a suburban plot. These are vigorous plants when everything goes right.

What are the pros? Great flavor, huge leaves

What are the cons? Long vines

Review:

Excellent squash. First year was last year, good to excellent sweet overall taste. Stores well in our home for fall/early winter use. Like it better than the banana squash primarily due to size/refrigeration/use time. This fruit is easily used within a few days in several ways and we didn't tire of the taste or have wasted fruit (like we did with the banana squash). Great cooked, baked, smoked; in pies or pasties/turnovers.
