(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.

Review:

I love these squash. Last year I let them grow on a fence and I had some 18 pounders that just dangled there until harvest. ( a couple did fall off) On the ground, I had 2 that grew to be 80 pounds and they were hilarious. I gifted them to a local fine dining restaurant and they were very impressed with the size, texture and taste. Raw it tastes a little like cantaloupe. The texture is like butternut or pumpkin. I sent some seeds to my uncle in Idaho and he grew them on the side of his house. He got a 60 pounder and they posted it in the Boise Newspaper. To get big ones I water a lot and fertilize with liquid Kelp and fish emulsion. Pictures can be seen at the Baker Creek Facebook page.

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....

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.
