(C. moschata) 100 days. A medium to large tan squash, weighing from 10-30 pounds or more. It is more or less oblong, tapering somewhat at the blossom end with slight flattened ribbing, firm skin and thick orange flesh. A long season variety that thrives in hot summers with warm nights and good moisture. The dry flesh is orange, sweet and of high quality. An excellent keeper that will store 5 months or longer. Grown by Elijah Dickinson, born in 1795, he brought the Dickinson pumpkin seeds to Eureka, Ill., from Kentucky in 1835. He didn’t know he was carrying with him the seeds of a million dollar pie pumpkin and one of the most valuable heirlooms in history. It is the backbone of the pie industry even today.

What are the pros? Interesting history

What are the cons? Better Varieties are available

Review:

This is an interesting squash, and plants with well known and old histories are fun to know about and try growing in your own garden. However, it's a C. moschata, which everyone knows is a butternut squash, and there are better eating squashes like those out there. If I grow pumpkins for pies, I'll go with Winter Luxury the next time. It's been my go to pumpkin for years and while it's fun to take a flyer every once in awhile, I'll leave this one to Libbys. :) The plants grew well and had no pests. I didn't grow many, maybe four all together, and ended up with several large squash, several mediums, and a couple that didn't reach maturity . Ended up with maybe 8 squash all together. It was dry this year, and I never watered the plants at all, after planting the seeds in a heavily composted area that had ten year old landscape fabric (Dewitt Sunbelt, the stuff lasts forever) on it.

Review:

Second year growing these. First year we had a very late frost and i had to replant so only got a few. This year they absolutely went to town. We ended up with 25 large squashes somewhere between 20 and 40 lbs, and at least dozen smaller ones that formed late. Not plagued by vine borers and the squash bugs didn't bother them either. Tasty orange flesh that we use in soup, stew and muffins, and as a treat for our dog, who loves cooked squash so we make sure to keep extra cooked squash ready in the freezer. Early this spring we ran out and tried to substitute canned - he wouldn't touch it. This is a must-grow for us.

Review:

This is a huge, vigorous vine. Each vine produces 3-4 medium-sized pumpkins, and the plants are ornamental enough to grow around large tropicals. The lush, beautiful foliage fits right in. Pumpkins are sweet, not stringy, and a good keeper. Make sure to let them mature completely for best flavor. The skin will be tan, and the flesh deep, pumpkin orange. I will grow this every year.
