(C. maxima) 105 days. Large, pink, banana- shaped fruit can weigh over 40 lbs. This variety is over 100 years old. We have grown this squash for many years. Fine-flavored, dry, sweet, orange flesh that is superbly fine tasting, one of my favorites. Popular on the West Coast; large yields.

What are the pros? great bang for buck

What are the cons? not a convenient size

Review:

I picked this up on impulse in June when veggie starts half price, so in the ground a month after my other squashes. It still produced 2 whopping squash 31 and 34 pounds. So 65 pounds of organic squash for a $2 plant start, not bad. I have made soup and pies with it, but the cubed roasted flesh really delicous too... My only complaint is that once you slice into it you have a week or so to "prpcess" it. I pressure cooked most of it and stored the strained solids in mason jars in the freezer....

What are the pros? Grew in the desert!

What are the cons? Leaf mold in arid weather

Review:

We live in Far West Texas. A friend came over and threw down some seeds for us in a ditch that is for our greywater. Boy where we excited to see this plant really take off. It is a great producer.

What are the pros? Large yield

What are the cons? Raccoons love it too!

Review:

Such beautiful squash and excellent yield. Out of the several varieties of squash growing in my garden, the pink banana was also sought after by raccoons! I would've liked them to stay out in the field longer but every night I find one dragged off down the hill with bites taken out of it! We want to enjoy some of them too! I picked the entire crop today. Highly recommend! Easy to peel with a veggie peeler, like a cucumber, so makes prepping a snap.

Huge and prolific flavor okay

What are the pros? Hilariously prolific, HUGE

What are the cons? Taste is fine, not perfect

Review:

We have grown many different varieties of squash in our Northern California backyard, but this one is the one we still talk about. The year we grew this, it was so intensely prolific that it climbed up our lemon tree and we had HUGE two foot (longer maybe?) long squash hanging down from the tree. It looked like our lemon tree was having an identity crisis! The flavor is fine, but not my most favorite squash (it isn't as moist or sweet as some others). It's a great producer though, and it didn't have any problems. It really wanted to take over the yard! I think I'd grow it again just for the fun of it - or if I wanted to have a huge crop of squash to freeze.
