(C. moschata) 90 days. This variety was a big hit at our 2014 Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, California... taking first prize. The stunning, round to bell-shaped fruit is terra-cotta to buff-colored, and warted very attractively. You’ll want to use this one in centerpieces and displays before you consign it to the kitchen! A commercial variety in north Africa.

What are the pros? Disease resistance, looks

What are the cons? Needs lots of space

Review:

So far, 4 pllants transplanted in April have taken over about a 150 square-foot plot in a community garden. A fifth plant was removed to make room for peppers and to keep a lavender alive. The first week of August, two sqaushes were harvested at 10-plus pounds. They were not orange, but green, so am not sure if they are 100% ripe, but some images on the Internet show some green ones. Will try to resist picking other sqaushes. Have noticed some squashes have pooped out, per other reviews. Right now, 4 more big squashes are actively growing. Had to cut back some vines as they were encroaching on neighbors' plots. There is only a little bit of mildew. They are resistant in a community garden with weather conditions that feature downy mildew and powdery milldew, as well as blight and fusarium. Right now, the picked squashes will cure 1-2 months per recommendation. Such vigorous vines are a delight, but the other reivewers aren't kidding, the vines are marvelous monsters.

Review:

This was my first time growing this variety. My garden is 20X40 and let me tell you, 4 plants took over nearly the entire garden. Not complaining because I planned out my crop planting in anticipation this might happen. Vines are very long with large vibrant green leaves. Incorporated lots of aged manure at planting. Mid summer they did get hit with a mild case of powdery mildew but all it seemed to do was encourage more growth. It was impressive. I ended up with 9 squash all different sizes and shapes. They are absolutely gorgeous and the taste is exquisite. I will definitely be growing these again. (I happened to see these for the first time at our local high end market last month. They weren’t even for sale, just display.)

What are the pros? Shape, color, sturdy survivor

What are the cons? One squash per gigantic vine

Review:

The fruit took a very long time to develop on long sprawling vines. I watched all of my other pumpkin and squash varieties succumb to powdery mildew but this vine just kept going without a speck of wilt or mildew. I planted 4 seeds in a large Rubbermaid tote and thinned to two plants. I ended up with one fruit of each shape, round and bell. Trained one up a chain link fence and one went wild on the lawn. The vines put out flower after flower, it was beautiful on the fence even without the squash! I entered the round squash into our towns’ fall festival and took home Best in Show against all the massive magnificent pumpkins! Wow!

Review:

I had high hopes for this squash, the vines are vigorous and quite pretty but as of the first week of September there are no squash forming on any of the plants (4).We have hot dry summers but we are able to water and the plants are mulched. Will try again next year and see what happens.

Review:

This squash plant was an entity that utterly fascinated me. Sprawling, vigorous, with many flowers, it drew me out for a look every day, even when I got home late from my office job. As others have reported, it dedicated itself to just one fruit at a time, so there were many miscarriages of baby squash while the magnum opus was growing. Once I harvested that one near Thanksgiving, a new one began to develop. I don't give it great chances of maturing, but as we haven't had a hard frost it is still hanging on in late January. Everyone who saw this squash (I had to show it to all visitors) admired it. Alas, the vivid colors faded a couple of weeks after I picked the squash. I still kept it around for two months. When I finally cut it up and cooked about a fifth of it last night, I got five cups of the best pur?ed winter squash I've ever eaten (I have always been a fan of winter squash steamed and then pur?ed with a little brown sugar and butter). To me, this was ambrosial.
