(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.

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.

We grew a number of squash and these were the least productive. We got one squash back in July and finally another has appeared. Not sure what the problem was.

What are the pros? Lots of squash per plant

What are the cons? none

Review:

This is an awesome squash. Easy to germinate and transplant, and lots and lots of squash per vine. Vines do sprawl and so far mine are 20ft long and still growing. No bugs and no powdery mildew issues. Plants are well over 4ft tall. Will grow again next year !!
