Product Overview

Cucurbita maxima

Introduced around 1900 and common in American pioneer gardens. Large, beautiful salmon-pink squash is delectably sweet and tender.

Very smooth, velvety skin makes 'Pink Banana' an attractive conversation piece as well as a delicious dish! Ancient Peruvians and American pioneers ate many a hearty meal with banana-type squash. 18"-24" long squash make not only a vegetable side dish, but are luscious in pies and baked goods, and an excellent canning candidate. Long vines up to 15'.

Variety Info

18"–24" long, 5"–7" wide with hard, smooth, salmon-pink skin and yellow-orange flesh. 10–12 pounds.
