Cucurbita maxima

HUGE 10-15 pound winter squash with delicious, sweet, dry yellow flesh.

This is the winter squash to grow if you want to feed a crowd. Huge fruits are extremely long-keeping and weight up to 10-15 pounds each! Dry, sweet flesh is perfect for pies, soups, and other concoctions. Vines will run rampant, so put them where they'll be welcome ramblers!

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!
