(Cucurbita maxima) 95 days. We are so excited to at last have seeds for the wonderful “Pink Pumpkin”. Very hard to find traditional squash from Brazil. Fruits are ribbed, light pink to salmon in color and weigh in at a modest 4-8 pounds. Traditionally used to make a dish called ‘Camarão na Moranga’ which means ‘shrimps in a squash.’

What are the pros? SO pretty! Productive, tasty

What are the cons? Nothing, grow this one!

Review:

These are probably the prettiest pumpkins I've grown. I love the "cinderella" shapes (Wider than tall, deeply ribbed, indented where the stem is) and this one is SO CUTE! Pretty shade of pale peach, deeply ribbed with fat lobes. Mine didn't get very big, they ranged from what I would call small to medium, which is perfect for me. For eating, they are on the sweet side, with just a bit of stringing. I blended it and used it in pumpkin spice lattes and cookies and it was great! I had great germination and ripened about 3 pumpkins per vine. I would have had more but I didn't plant the seeds until middle of June and they were killed by frost mid-September. So they did great considering they had somewhere between 90-100 days, and there were several smaller "green" ones that were ruined by the first frost. The blooms were crazy, for me. There were dozens of male flowers at all times, and I think that helped with the production on my other squash as well. I will grow this one every year.

Review:

In 63 years of growing (starting age 4), Moranga squash may be the most beautiful variety I've ever nurtured. Just gorgeous: the salmon-pink scalloped skin with pale green splotches. Here in west-central Missouri, in good organic soil, I planted Moranga on July 2nd, after squash bugs had found earlier squash plantings (catch crops). For good measure, morning glory and sweet potato roots were started around the winter squash perimeter; squash bugs hate the ipomoea family. Moranga grew unbothered til harvest in mid-October. We are allowing most to cure a bit more before taking to the kitchen. Moranga appears to be an above average to excellent keeper. I am really grateful to Jere and his crew for making this variety available.

What are the pros? Beautiful, prolific.

What are the cons? ???? None!

Review:

THESE are the pumpkin everybody should grow! We actually haven't ate one yet, (I'm sure they'll taste great, too) but they are so beautiful! And they're so darn prolific. Watch out or they'll easily take over your garden! We've already gotten 5 big pumpkins from our vines and it's barely harvest season here! The vines are still going strong and they managed to squeeze outside the fence and kept growing in the cow pasture and up the fence! And did I mention they're beautiful? I'll make room for these beauties in my garden every year from now on I'm positive. :) I wasn't sure that we'd like the look of pumpkins that had green on them, but they're so pretty! They're ringing in fall early and decorating our front porch. :) They turn a bit darker orange color as they age some, too.

Review:

Grew these in 2015 for the first time. Definitely will be growing it again. It did well even though it was planted late up here in Canada and the flavour is awesome...not too sweet or dry, but robust. And lots of thick flesh. Best of all, it keeps very well! I made a soup from my last one yesterday, May 2nd. Highly recommended!

What are the pros? Very prolific, very healthy,

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was one of the most prolific and healthy squashes for me this season. I loved the pinkish color on this one when first picked (becomes more orange in storage)., very unusual. I had no insect or disease problems this year on any of my squash, so I can't attest to any particular resistance on the part of this variety. However, barring severe problems with borers in your area, I suggest you give this a try.
