Cucurbita pepo

Like a Grateful Dead song, it just keeps going on and on!

A great example of what can happen when farmers and plant breeders work side by side. A collaboration between Organic Seed Alliance and Eel River Farm, this variety improves upon one of its parent Black Beauty for its uniform production of quality fruit, even if it's left on the vine longer. We had the pleasure of being introduced to it by our friend Donna Ferguson, who helped with its breeding at Eel River Farm. Open-pollinated.

Seeds grown by Affinity Farm in Moscow, Idaho.

25 seeds.

Directions: Start indoors 4-6 weeks before last frost and transplant after. Or, direct seed after last frost. Interplant with nasturtiums to deter squash bugs.
