Cucurbita maxima

Super sweet heirloom squash with finely textured flesh.

This turban shaped squash produces 3-5 lb fruits that boast indulgently sweet, fine-textured meat that is never stringy. A medium keeper, it will hold for several months, but avoid damaging it as bruised fruits can spoil easily. Makes excellent pies and is delicious for baking.

Seeds grown by Bluebird Forest Garden in Orofino, Idaho.

25 seeds.

Directions: Direct seed after frost. Or start indoors 6 weeks before last frost and transplant after frost. Plant with nasturtiums to deter pests.
