(C. maxima) 95 days A delicious heirloom from Oregon; excellent flavored deep orange flesh is very sweet. Fruit are large and flattened in shape (somewhat like a Rouge Vif D'Etampes). Skin color is beautiful deep sea blue-green. Our family grew this one more than twenty years ago when we used to live in Oregon.

What are the pros? Flavor, Color, Size

What are the cons? 1-2 squash per plant

Review:

I have been growing sweet meat squash here in NE Minnesota for the past few years. It is the only pie squash/pumpkin that I grow anymore as its flavor just cannot be beat! In addition, they are simply beautiful and store for several months in my basement crawl space. I just pulled my first squash from the vine today, weighing in at nearly 22 pounds. The only downsides would be that you get 1-2 squash per plant and in my cold climate/short growing season, it's hard to get them to maturity before the frost. Thankfully this year we've only received light frosts through which the plants have survived. Overall, I would highly recommend due to its unmatched flavor!

What are the pros? tastes amazing

What are the cons? none

Review:

We tried Sweet Meat for the first time this year. We had a terrible growing year, with a cold wet spring followed by heat and drought, and we don't water the garden, so it was hard on the plants. Most of our squash succumbed to drought, but one Sweet Meat plant survived, and even managed to set three or four fruit. They matured in our very short season, and the flavor blew us away. We've eaten all but one of these squashes already, just roasted with oil and salt, and I'll be ordering more seeds for next year!

What are the pros? Best flavored squash

What are the cons? None

Review:

Our elevation is 1100 feet and we get quite a bit of rain. This is the best squash I can grow here, my favorite. Great flavor, easy to store for winter if harvested without damaging the stem area. My experience is 2 to 3 squash per plant, they weigh from 8# to 26#. We cook them and freeze them in 1 quart bags for easy winter use. Best way to go. I do recommend these. Don't be afraid to fertilize them, I use chicken dropping from a farm near by. Also plant a couple extra, the last couple years we have had some lack in germination, not sure why that is??

What are the pros? productive and easy too grow

What are the cons? none

Review:

One plant 12 squash averaging nearly 18lbs, Now I think that is productive. Sweet and flavorful. No added calories needed. Easy to grow too. Anxious to see if results are as good next year.

What are the pros? Beautiful plant

What are the cons? some sort of Wilt

Review:

I thought the borers might destroy them, but some sort of wilt infected them. Only plant remaining survived because it is in a large container by itself instead being in the raised bed with the wilted plants. I would recommend planting corn around the plants and planting in containers or separate beds to minimize wilt damage.
