(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 fruits have 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.

Review:

This old south bariety makes a splash on any dinner table. I was able to grow a total of four fruits but one fruit I let go and I ended up winning longest squash at a local event we had. The fruit can get massively long. Roasted it off in half moons for Thankgiving with my favorite spices and brown sugar and people couldnt get enough as they stripped the flesh from the skin and ate it like a watermelon.....its that good. Good substitute for pumpkin in pies and sweet potatoes in casseroles....they are that good. Rare variety, definitely undergoing species isolation(the first step to extinction and loss of genetic diversity.) Gardeners need to grow these kinds of varieties so future generations can have them.

Review:

My sister grew this in her 2017, raised-bed, garden. She got three fruits off one plant, with each one weighing roughly 3 pounds. Keep this plant well-watered during the summer, or it will wilt. The fruits are quite lovely. My sister posted a photo with 2 of the fruits to her Facebook page.

Vines ran 22 feet! Got 3 large fruits from 1 plant. Easy to grow. Keep well-watered during hot summer days, or vines will wilt.

Review:

We are the Big M Farm in Nenana Alaska and have grown these for our You-pick customers. They are a favorite with everyone. We are growing even more this summer. They were easy to grow, and very prolific and the taste is wonderful. We started them in the greenhouses in late April. Planted them out the first of June and picked them in late August and September. You can google us for pictures on facebook:)

What are the pros? Large delicious fruits

What are the cons? Took long to get much

Review:

So I planted this in spring and I got only 2 fruits. I decided to leave the vine in since it still looked decent. It didn't do much through summer.....just kept itself alive. Towards the end of summer it suddenly exploded with blooms and just as fall started I got a bunch of fruits. I'm not sure why but mine were yellowish rather then pink. I let them ripen as until we got a freeze then I took the fruits in cutting way back on the vine so it would allow it to continue to ripen inside the house and they did but the inside never got orange. It was always more yellow. Still very delicious. Mild and slightly sweet, a lot of flesh so one goes a very long way. The bugs didn't bother it much nor did any diseases. It was one of those that you just plant and let it do it's thing. I will say it gets huge so be sure you have the room.
