(C. mixta) Also known as White Crookneck Pumpkin. Large white-to-ivory, club-shaped fruits reach 30 inches long and weigh 18-25 lbs. The flesh is pale yellow, and the fruits keep fairly well. The variety was widely grown in southern Illinois, often in cornfields, and was preferred there for pies. Our foundation seed came from collector Kevin McCarty, who writes that the variety was grown continuously on a particular Illinois farm from 1830 to 1980, the original seed having been provided by Abraham Lincoln’s parents!

Review:

Ate the first one tonight and had to write about it. The vines are really long so one must have room to grow this squash. Its very similar in looks to the Penns. Dutch Crookneck only a very white shell. This squash survived a severe drought and extremely hot temps for the midwest- produced pretty good. I planted 6 plants and the average vine had 3-4 squash on them. I imagine they're smaller in size due to lack of rain. I did water and mulch heavily with newspaper and straw. The taste is good as well. I made roasted squash with this one and a creamy sausage sqash pasta...excellent flavor and I'm hoping they keep for a while since I have several.
