( C. maxima) 105 days.Attractive, very flat, pure white pumpkins that are unique and tasty. Very sweet orange flesh is perfect for pies and baking. A wonderful decorating and eating variety that was historically popular in South Africa and was named for the Dutch Boers who were once the colonial power. We are glad to finally have seeds for this rare treasure. Fruits can grow to 30 lbs.

Review:

We had a horrendous growing season here with heavy rain in the spring and then months of no rain and extreme heat. I pretty much planted these and forgot about them. I also planted about 8 other varieties of pumpkins at the same time. For a long time I didn’t see much happen, and then out of nowhere I have found many mature fruits, as well as dozens of smaller ripening fruits. I can not believe how well this has done with no help at all. It had some serious burdock competition and that hasn’t slowed it down. Can’t wait to try it in pies. Out of all the varieties I planted, this one has come out in front as far as productivity and resistance to everything

Review:

This is one of the pumpkins that produced like crazy! I had so many giant, flat white pumpkins growing everywhere, and the circumstances weren't all that great. It grew beneath corn plants that shaded the other pumpkin varieties which didn't grow. These had no problem. The vines went crazy! And they are such beautiful, perfect pumpkins. They were so pretty on display on my front porch in the autumn. Love them. Will grow again!

What are the pros? Beautiful, wonderful eating

Review:

This is a wonderful winter squash. I grow many and prefer maximas. This is among my favorites, along with Sweetmeat, Lower Salmon River. This is a beautiful squash. The flesh is sweet, dry and very, very firm (holding its shape well even when fully cooked). It is large and has very thick flesh and small seed cavity. Good storing and eating. Grow it, preserve it. Cheers!

What are the pros? its very cute and attractive

What are the cons? the fruit flies like it alot

Review:

i have purchased 1 packet at a grocery store. been patient to see the fruits set. although i could not deter the fruit flies from destroying the early fruits, am delighted with only one that is maturing. cant wait to have a taste of it. and i will also pick the seeds out to plant more again. its colour is very attrcative, we are used to other colours here but the pure white of this will be a market breaker. i really hope it will be as sweet when i finally pick it from the garden. am very thrilled by this experience. will be back to review after tasting it.

What are the pros? Impressive appearance

What are the cons? Not ideal for Gulf Coast

Review:

Grown in raised beds with automatic drip system irrigation, trained to trellis over 8' cattle fence arch, the pesticide-free growing environment has proven successful for many types of vining squash and melons. The white boer quickly vined and formed numerous fruit, several of which matured to 18-24" diameter. Stunning appearance. However, when June came it's unclear whether it was the 3-weeks of solid rain, temps raising to 90s, infestation by vine borer moth, or some combination of all three, but all vines died in two weeks and dropped their squash. Did not get sweet meat like other reviews, apparently because they had not fully matured yet. Tasted like yellow summer squash. Still good, just not sweet. We'll use these nonetheless as eye-popping ornamentals in the fall.
