(C. maxima) 100 days. A very rare and unique variety that was imported from Australia in 1932, from seed secured from Arthur Yates and Co., of Sydney. This squash is lobed like a three-leaf clover, making this light sea-green squash unusual looking. They weigh about 10 lbs each and have sweet, orange, fine-grained flesh. A fine variety for decoration or the table.

What are the pros? Amazing flavor. Keeps 4 months

What are the cons? Pain to peel.

Review:

This is by far my favorite winter squash. They can get large, if you let them, or pick them smaller. Id recommend letting them grow as big as they can get. The odd shape gives you less meat per sq/ft compared to just about any other winter squash, aaaand its also a pain to peel and cut, but it makes up for it with a superb flavor as well as a ridiculously long shelf life. It will keep for months at relatively cool room temperatures, even longer in cold storage. The amount of fruit youd get out of 1 plant would be maybe 3-5 large per., but they wouldnt sprawl out as badly as other melons and squashes.

What are the pros? It so unusual.

What are the cons? not as prolific as others

Review:

This seed was given to me and it looks are enough to try it. haven't eaten it yet but the vines are not going to give you a lot of fruit set. I only got 3 maybe 4, very large 4-5 lbs, could have been more but heavy drought in our region, not a lot of rain at all. Will try again next year

Review:

This will be my first year to actually grow the Triamble, but I have eaten it before. Bought one as a Halloween decoration; it kept SO well over the months that I decided to keep it for cooking. I divided the three lobes and froze them. Has beautiful dark orange flesh. Just lately I thawed out two lobes to use in a chicken & kale recipe from Whole Foods. It was fantastic! Not as sweet as butternut but not as bland as some pumpkins.

Review:

I grew this one in the summer of 2010, and I still have a couple I keep around for decoration. I recently cut into one of them - it's a little drier now of course but the flesh was just fine. It does need a good start to mature in time; I planted a couple last year rather late, and none of them matured enough to keep.
