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

What are the pros? Beautiful, wonderful eating

What are the cons? Long-maturing

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.

Perfect Pie pumpkin

What are the pros? Made the best pumpkin pie

What are the cons? None

Review:

If you want a squash that makes the best tasting and best looking pumpkin pie, this is it. I tried with other squash but my daughter wouldn't eat them because they didn't have the orange, from the can look. This one stays orange and isn't watery at all. Great taste and beautiful flesh!

What are the pros? Beautiful and a taste of home

What are the cons? Needs patience

Review:

Great to see these seeds now available in the USA, I have been growing these pumpkins for years here in California and they really grow well here. They love lots of water and full sun. Last year I got 14 Pumpkins and they were amazing and great tasting. Be careful not to harvest too early, wait for the vines to die and then harvest, they may look ready while the vines are still alive, but the pumpkins will still be green inside, hence waiting to the end of the season to harvest is key.
