(C. moschata) 105 days. A popular 19th century Pennsylvania variety that is still grown in many Amish communities. Sometimes called “Neck Pumpkin” because of its long, flesh-filled neck, it somewhat resembles a giant butternut squash with a very long neck. It can reach 20 lbs in size! The flesh is superb, being deep orange and richly flavored, making it so popular with Amish wives for making their delectable pumpkin pies, butters and other deserts. A favorite of ours, and a good keeper.

What are the pros? Insect resistant, solid necks

What are the cons? Hard to store shape,

Review:

We planted these last year for the first time. Since they were the only squash that had 100% germination without any special treatment in the presence of corn seed maggots, we were impressed. They grew very well in spite of a drier than normal year. We got as many squash as we wanted and more. They have good flavor, better and sweeter than a butternut. The necks are wonderful for cooking since they are so solid.

What are the pros? Resist vine bore, store, taste

What are the cons? Long vines, low # fruit

Review:

Gave up on summer squash d/t vine borers, these are very resistant. Planted late March along with Butternut and Seminole, 3 started plants each. Harvest 2 x 5 pounders in June, 2 more in July 8 pound Butternut, and 4 more 1 butternut so far in Aug (these are half the previous size/weight). Lots of vines compared to number of developed squash - 1 vine 50' long. Lost 1 of these and 1 Seminole d/t buried in vines/leaves, rot at stem end before realized attached to dead section of vine. More are growing on the vines. I cut the bulb off, slice neck lengthwise, remove seeds and 'strings' from bulb, season neck and bulb with butter and variety of home grown herbs, wrap in aluminum foil, bake at 350 until tender (about 2 hours for large ones) then enjoy.

Review:

I love this pumpkin, it is easy to grow and gets heaps of fruit, but I am having trouble with the blossom end rotting before the ;pumpkin is mature. The flower is so tight I think the bees have trouble getting in to it. I have tried hand polinating and that seems to work. If anyone can give me some advice I would appreciate it.
