(C. moschata) 100 days. Introduced to America about 1862 by James Hogg, of Yorkville, New York, from seeds his brother Thomas sent him from Japan. We are so happy to reintroduce this piece of American history. The beautiful fruits are very flat, ribbed and dark-green-totan in color. The golden flesh is dry and fine-grained. Listed by both Burr (1863) and Vilmorin (1885). RARE!

What are the pros? Pest resistant, prolific

What are the cons? Sprawling

Review:

Though it's not quite the sprawling, garden-hogging monster that Zucchinio Rampicante is, it's close. That said, the bugs didn't phase it, it didn't demand any care or attention from me, and it produced like crazy. All in all, a very forgiving and easy to grow squash. The fruits are delicious, especially stuffed, and they store very well. Also, one average sized squash will comfortably feed two, which makes it pretty much the most perfect squash ever. The leaves are quite large and shading, but I was able to grow cowpeas amongst the vines without an issue. Give it lots of room, lots of half-composted manure, and sit back and relax. I wouldn't recommend letting this one sprawl on top of a plastic ground cover (or a trellis) because the vines send roots into the ground as they travel, which I suspect helps it produce so prolifically and bounce back from borer and squash bug attacks.

What are the pros? Taste, production, storage

What are the cons? Almost invasive

Review:

Grown in NW Arkansas, this squash took over half of my garden and one vine went 10-12 feet up a neighboring tree. They produced about 30 squash on two plants, and they stored well; the last one was eaten in December and it was still firm and tasty. They're quite hollow and the meat is thin, but man... the taste was amazing. Sweet, nutty, with a hint of butter nut and punkin. They make a great soup, although the green edible hyde makes the final product a little off-putting in color. Best slowly sauteed in a little ghee and a pinch of salt.

What are the pros? Beautiful

What are the cons? Flavor, texture

Review:

I was super excited about this squash and have quite an obsession with trying different kinds of winter squash. I thought this one was beautiful and I had never heard of it before so I had to try it. It didn't produce prolifically but this is north Idaho so it would quite likely do better elsewhere. I did yield some though. Unfortunately they seemed rather watery and bland to me so I won't bother with them again.

Review:

2015 was the first year I grew this squash in my zone 8 rainy climate. I was apprehensive as I had read mixed reviews. I found it easy to germinate indoors in seed starter. I transplanted outdoors in May to a highly organic hugelculture garden deeply mulched. These plants had the option of extending toward long hours of sun one way or under the near complete shade of a fruit tree the other way. They all chose the shade and climbed high up in to the tree. Fruit were huge and beautiful. I harvested in early autumn in with fair yields (3-4 large fruit per plant). The fruit is light, buttery, and sweet. I will definitely be growing them again this year.
