120 days. The wild squash of the Everglades is a pumpkin with deep historic roots and rich sweet flavor. A beloved pumpkin of the deep South, especially celebrated in the Florida farming community for its unparalleled heat tolerance. This variety has varying shapes; each squash averages about 3-10 lbs and has tan skin. The sweet flesh is deep orange, dry and of good quality. The productive vines are resistant to insects and disease. An original squash variety of the Creek, Calusa and Miccosukee Native American tribes, it can now only be found wild in remote parts of the Everglades, or circulated among the gardening and seed saving communities of Florida.
