(C. mixta) 95 days. Big, white fruit with small, green stripes; oblong with crooked necks and bulbous bottoms. The large vines are vigorous and are good for the South. A Native American squash that has an ancient history. Great for fall pumpkin sales.

Review:

I grew up eating these and it was always delicious. My family is originally from east Texas. After I left home as an adult I forgot about them. My mom has been home to glory for quite some years now. Getting a hold to them a few years ago and now growing my own, I will keep them in my garden. My mom would peel them and then boil them till tender. Then she would mash them up with butter and sugar and let them bake in the oven for a bit until it browns some. It is the most delicious and sweet of its it's kind. It kind of reminds me of a sweet potato. Go really good with some collards and any kind of meat you prefer.

Review:

Grew this squash in 2018. Seeds were started indoors in mid April and two seedlings were transplanted into the garden after Mother's Day. Plants needs space. Fruits were harvested in October. Have no idea how long the fruits would have lasted in storage because we ended up eating all of them by the end of January 2019. Excellent flavor and makes a lovely pie.

What are the pros? Solid Neck Easier to Work With

What are the cons? None

Review:

This is a great multipurpose squash. You can bake, fry (like zucchini), or make pies. These fruits can weigh 30 pounds or more. Got 73 pounds of squash off of one plant in 2018. Require plenty of room. Again, make wonderful pie.

What are the pros? Squash vine borer resistant!

What are the cons? None really

Review:

I received seeds from a friend who grows these in her West Texas cow pasture (fenced off). That area gets very little rain, so I worried about growing in the South Texas coastal area, since we are considered sub-tropical. They grow well for me here, despite the squash vine borers and the fact that I pretty much ignore them after planting. I added rabbit manure and a little mulch at planting and used my drip irrigation when necessary. They are very hardy. I did no other fertilizing or care other than keep the majority of the weeds out. (Hers were larger, but I didn't fertilize very much) I would liken them to the taste of a zucchini but I like the texture better, though. When you cook a zucchini it tends to get wet and limp, whereas a cushaw will stay firmer and drier. I like to stir fry these cut up with other vegetables in oil and a little ginger and touch of brown sugar. Makes the best stir-fry, and my friend still mentions it when I see her, even though that was over a year ago!
