(C. maxima) Here is a unique and colorful native Hopi Indian variety. The 10 lb round fruits have a very hard lovely pale gray rind, making this a great keeping variety. Orange flesh is both sweet and dry; large vines are quite vigorous. A Southwestern heirloom from the Hopi people that has nearly become extinct in recent years. A favorite for flavor!

What are the pros? Best yield

What are the cons? Takes a ton of room

Review:

Planted in May and fruits started appearing in June. One pkg of seeds produced at least 13 good sized squash. I am so pleased with its performance! Can't wait to try some recipes

What are the pros? Productive, Pest resistant

What are the cons? Takes over the world

Review:

I'm in Zone 8b and grew this squash for the first time this year. It is hugely productive with vines that take over the world and fruits that can reach 10 pounds. Since it is a winter squash it will store well as most other reviewers have mentioned. While my favorite winter squash so far is Delicata, I'm looking forward to tasting Hopi Pale Grey--I just hopi (sorry, couldn't resist) its flavor is as good as others have reported. I'm looking forward to baking it with butter and brown sugar. I do not recommend planting this squash with beans and corn as part of a three sisters planting. It is so aggressive and vigorous it choked out my beans. Didn't bother the corn at all, though. I'll go back to Zucchini or cantaloupe as the third member of the three sisters next year. In spite of that "flaw" Hopi Pale Grey is so productive I'll definitely grow it again next year. It's a keeper.

What are the pros? High producing squash

What are the cons? None

Review:

Grew this variety season of 2017. Direct sowed first week of may. Vines were very vigorous and take up a bit of room. Extremely productive. Harvested end of september and one packet of seed produced over 700 pounds of squash. Smallest 14 pounds, largest over 30. Now middle of february 2018 and have over 20 squash in storage. Excellent keeping variety. Very sweet flavor and texture. Not stringy at all like some varieties i have eaten.

What are the pros? This squash grows well.

What are the cons? None

Review:

We just cooked and ate a Hopi grey from last year! It has been sitting in a crate in the garage for 14-15 months, and it was as good as if it were just harvested. Dense orange flesh, very good squash taste, beautiful squash to grow! If you are in to long term storage, this is the best.

What are the pros? Rare historical variety

What are the cons? vine borer susceptibility high

Review:

This squash is very susceptible to vine borers. For that reason it is nearly impossible in our area to raise it to maturity. I've grown it twice and each time had problems with the borers. I will try again though. I would not recommend it if vine borers are a problem in your area.
