(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.

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!

What are the pros? Delicious

What are the cons? Not easy to discern when ripe.

Review:

President of our garden club gave me one of her extra plants. This variety is very prolific. Got 11 squash from one plant; each weighing 6 to 7 pounds. Vines reached 20 feet. Sliced squash into 2" disks. Seasoned with salt, pepper, turmeric, and olive oil and then baked on cookie sheet at 350 for one hour. When baked, rind is easily removed with paring knife. The only difficult thing about this squash is knowing when it is ripe. Bland if picked too early, but delicious when fully mature.

What are the pros? Beautiful and tasty!

What are the cons? Not sure when fruits are ripe.

Review:

President of our garden club germinated a bunch of seeds and ended up with more than she needed. I accepted one of her excess plants. There are 11 fruits growing on this plant, so it is VERY prolific! Needs a lot of room. I harvested the first fruit yesterday (10/3). It came in at 11 pounds. Making soup with one half and pumpkin pie with the other half.
