(C. maxima) 85-105 days. This colorful variety was grown by the Lakota Sioux. It’s pear-shaped, and flame-red with green streaks at the bottom. So attractive for fall decorations. The flesh is fine-grained and sweet with a great nutty taste. A wonderful squash that ranks among the most beautiful.

What are the pros? Squash color isn't bad

What are the cons? Incredibly low yield

Review:

Disappointing. Despite planting in manure amended soil and several rounds of fish emulsion throughout the season vines stayed very small, grew no more than 18" or so. Produced a reasonable number of blossoms, but fruit just didn't seem to set. Other squash & veggies I grew set fruit just fine, so I don't think it was a pollinator issue. I'd read reviews about how prolific this variety was so I only grew 3 vines, not wanting to overwhelm my pantry. Coming into harvest, I have exactly 3 softball-sized squash. I may change my mind if the flavor is incredible, but yield this low is a strong negative.

What are the pros? pretty

What are the cons? doesn't grow well in northeast

Review:

Grew 5 plants and got 2 squashes, 1 that was edible. I'm a commercial farmer and love adding weird and unusual varieties to my farmers' markets stand. These however will not be grown again, it just didn't do well in our area. We had an exceptionally dry and hot summer here in Vermont and the dryness may have affected productivity but i got plenty of butternuts, acorns, etc.

What are the pros? easy to train vines on fencing

What are the cons? long vines !

Review:

Trained these awesome vines to grow on arched cattle feedlot panels. This left plenty of room to grow this squash as well as my usual garden plants of beans, corn, tomato etc. Planted seeds 5-16-18 and the feedlot panels are covered in vines with volleyball sized colorful fruits hanging. So far the vines have been able to support the squash. We are half way through the growing cycle. Expecting to harvest around first week in August. Have never eaten this squash before. Hope to be able to can it !

What are the pros? color, taste, texture

What are the cons? Low yield

Review:

This was our first year growing these beautiful squash, and we were very pleased with the results. We planted them the first week of July in south central Missouri and harvested the first week in October. The yield was lower than we had hoped due to squash beetles eating several of the blossoms, but that’s just part of the deal in an organic garden. The flesh is firm and nutty, delicious steamed or our favorite....squash soup. Highly recommend this beauty to all.

Review:

I grew this squash two years earlier and then I spread my compost into my soil in year two and then all of a sudden, the vines were growing and low and behold, it was the Lakota Squash seeds that survived the compost pile! I had vines that grew 12 - 15ft / about 3.5 to 4.5 meters. The squash grew to approximately 15 to 18 lbs / 7 to 8 kilos. This squash stores really well, too. The flavor was delicious. The flavor was nutty yet semi-sweet. Very good steamed in chunks for rice dishes and also makes an excellent soup. You can peel and chop it into 2 inch chunks and split portions to share with your family, friends and neighbors. Even share the seeds. I can see why the Lakota Sioux developed grew this varietal. They had a village to feed!
