Squash Winter, Musquee de Maroc
90 days. This variety was a big hit at the 2014 Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, California, taking first prize. The stunning, round-to-bell-shaped fruit is Terracotta 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! An incredible variety from North Africa.
