Product Overview

Cucurbita maxima

This vibrantly-colored squash has deliciously sweet and nutty flavor. Once a staple food of Native Americans, it stores well for a winter treat.

This gorgeous squash is much more than a decoration. A superior baking variety, it has fine-grained flesh with an enticing, sweet, nutty flavor. Once a staple variety of the Lakota Sioux, it has not been widely available until recently. This adaptable winter squash stores well and, like all squash, is easy to grow from seed. 10- to 20-foot vines.

Variety Info

8"–10" long, 6"–8" in diameter and 4–8 lbs. Outer shell color most often is crimson flecked with deep green radiating from the blossom end, but can vary with growing conditions, and be mostly orange, or mostly green; flesh is deep orange. It is widely adaptable and tolerant to many conditions.

Sowing Inside

Not recommended except in very short growing seasons, 2 to 4 weeks before your average last frost date. Roots sensitive to disturbance; sow in 4" biodegradable pots that can be planted directly into the ground. Transplant when soil temperature is at least 60°F.

Sowing Outside

RECOMMENDED. 1 to 2 weeks after your average last frost date, and when soil temperature is 70°–85°F.
