(C. maxima) 90 days. A beautiful squash striped in red, orange, green, and white. A very old variety from France (pre-1820); fine, thick, orange flesh, good-sized fruit. Unique.

What are the pros? Great producer, Fun to grow,

What are the cons? Extremely large vine

Review:

This Squash was a lot of fun. One heal produced well over 50 squash ranging in size from 1lb to 3lb. The only draw back to the squash is the vine took over my entire garden space and attempted to escape. It didn't bother it that when temperatures passed 100 or even that there were cracks in the ground a half inch wide from the drought it just kept growing. Even the summer wind storm didn't slow it down; the neighbor said it looked like a giant plant monster trying to get up and walk, but in the end it just produced some more squash. The garden is 14 by 14 by home owners association and the runners were up to 20 feet long. I hadn't used summer squash before but fond a stuffed squash receipt that was a favorite at home and at the church social as well. If you can't tell I really liked this one just wish I had the space to do it again.

What are the pros? Great taste and storage

What are the cons? none

Review:

These continue to be our favorite tasting winter squash. They have a superb nutty flavor. They store extremely well. They can be a challenge to cut into to prepare for roasting, but that very aspect helps them store long into late winter/early spring. Of course, they are also beautiful and fun!

Risotto with Turban Squash
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? visual appeal and rich taste

What are the cons? none

Review:

This winter squash often overlooked as just a gourd or halloween decoration is wonderful when oven roasted then, after removing the cap and saving it scoop out the seeds. Add the roasted squash to cooked risotto and serve risotto and squash inside hollowed out squash using reserved cap as a cover. This always gets rave reviews at holiday dinners for taste and presentation and the squash itself is rich, sweet and nutty. A wonderful addition to creamy risotto.

Review:

So many people say that Turban squash make poor pies and have poor eating qualities. I must strongly disagree. I have used Turban squash for pies for years and everyone raves about them. I've cooked up many a Turban squash for dinner and found them all to be strongly "squashy" in flavor...and I am very picky, having been raised in the north and reared on Hubbard and Butternut squashes. I think Turban gets a bad rap from people who don't know how to cook winter squash (bake or steam, don't boil the pieces) or who have poor pie recipes. Boiling any winter squash waters down the flavor and makes the flesh watery. I've found Turbans to be semi-dry, semi-sweet with lots of full-squash flavor.

Review:

I live in SC and grew 6 different types of squash for the first season (planted in March). We are plagued by squash vine borers and wet rot here, and sadly I have had to rip out most of it. The only squash that is consistently producing fruit is the Turban squash... at the moment I have easily ten squash going strong from three plants, with more coming. As it's only early June I'm understandably optimistic. I have had to remove a total of two viine borer grubs from the three plants, quite unlike my other varieties (Rouge Vif, Galeux, Hokkaido, Winter squash, and Howden) which were without exception completely infested.
