Cucurbita maxima*

Turn your yard into a pumpkin patch! The kids will come a-runnin! 

Nothing says fall like a mass of pumpkins, and these beefy beauties don't disappoint!

*Note to seed savers: Our seed stock claims to be Cucurbita maxima, but it looks to us like it could be C. pepo, so hand-pollinate if you want to save seeds from it and are growing other pepos. OP. 100 days to maturity.

Squashes are a part of the vast agricultural and culinary legacy of this continent, with indigenous seedkeepers in modern-day Mexico and Central America cultivating some types at least 10,000 years ago. Along with their sisters corn and beans, they spread throughout the western hemisphere through the loving care of Native Americans and by the time European colonizers arrived on the continent, many varieties of squash were being grown by farmers from the southwest to the northeast. We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to the original stewards of the nutrient-packed, long-keeping, healthy-seed-spawning miracle that is a squash! 

20 seeds.

Seeds grown by B and B Farms in Kuna, Idaho.
