(C. moschata) 120 days The wild squash of the Everglades. The round, lightly ribbed 3-lb squash have tan skin. The sweet flesh is deep orange, dry and of good quality. The productive vines are resistant to insects and disease. Found growing wild in Florida by early Spanish settlers, it can now only be found in remote parts of the Everglades.

What are the pros? Great grower, attractive plant

What are the cons? terrible taste

Review:

Germination was excellent and the vines grew fast and were very attractively mottled. Fruit set was excellent and the crop was ripe by mid July and the vines dead by late July. Only problem was the taste. I tried them fresh picked and after a couple months in storage. Either way the taste was extremely bland. It's too bad as I really liked the plants and the yield but not worth eating.

Review:

We had a VERY wet beginning season with 37 inches of rain from May thru early August. Then it STOPPED for 8 weeks! I grew the Seminole pumpkin and an acorn squash. The Acorn finally gave in to squash vine borer and powdery mildew at the end of the season. But the Seminole pumpkin kept growing strong! It did have some sign of PM but it didn't seem to bother it at all. Late October we are getting frost and this crazy plant is still producing! We grow organically with fish emulsion and rabbit poo from our rabbits, and our Seminole pumpkins were anywhere from 4 to 15 pounds! They look like the pictures above, but I guess with a little pampering, they get big! And boy, did they produce! I tried the first one, cubing it and roasting in the oven with olive oil, fresh thyme and rosemary and some sea salt. GOOD! Took some of the roasted pumpkin to the farmer's market for some of our organic grower vendors to try, and they thought it was better than butternut, out producing them!

What are the pros? Thrives

What are the cons? Space needed

Review:

As with the other reviews, this grows and strongly when other varieties of squashes all around die due to bugs or disease. Outstanding. It does indeed take a lot of space though. Next year I will try pruning more and see if that works.

Review:

I ordered some Seminole Pumpkin seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds and planted 4 plants this past spring. They did very well and were everything they were reported to be (insect resistant, disease resistant, heavy bearing, and delicious.). They averaged 15 - 18 fruits per plant. What was unusual was that each plant produced a different looking fruit from ones that looked like what was pictured at the site I ordered them from to some that were similar to butternut squash. And one plant produced fruits that looked similar to a Banana squash but strongly ribbed. Plants were identical; dark green with white blotches. No complaints here as they all did well and taste delicious. I highly recommend them. They were even resistant to the squash vine borers that always wipe out my other squashes. The vines grow about 60 ft. long so they need a lot of room. These squash can be used young for summer squash or used mature like butternut squash. I will be growing these every year now.

Review:

A friend started these from seed and gave me three plants, which I put in pots between the garden and the driveway since I can't grow squash due to borers. I put them out in June and forgot them. We left town for nearly 3 weeks in early July. When we came back, we had to pull the vines out from under our truck to get out of the driveway. We had to cut off vines that had grown out onto the lawn. The three plants rooted at nodes and took over the rest of the vegetable garden. We have harvested 124 squashes off those three plants so far! There are many more out there that have not yet turned golden. In reading a previous review, I see that you can also eat them when they are green, so I guess I'll go out and get 30 or so more tomorrow. The golden ones are hard. I put them in the microwave (whole) for a couple of minutes to soften them up. Then I cut them in half, remove the seeds, and either bake them or peel them and cut the flesh into bite-sized pieces for stir-frying. Delicious!
