Product Overview

Cucurbita pepo

A 1938 award winner with creamy, firm, deliciousness in every bite, and still a favorite. Seed to table in just 45 days!

This award-winning variety is still a favorite and for good reason! Thick, firm, fine-grained delicious squash is ready to harvest in just 45 days! Versatile summer squash can be eaten raw, pickled, or cooked in innumerable ways, including in sweet breads. Best picked at 4"–7", or smaller for "baby" size. If left on the vine, it may grow so big that it would take two people to carry it!
