Webstore Exclusive

This vining oddity doubles as a whimsical summer and winter squash.

This awesome heirloom can grow to over 3' long, and will either snake around in the grass or create a complete spectacle hanging pendulously from a trellis or pergola. Pick it young and often for an excellent, nutty summer squash, or allow it to fully ripen for winter eating. 60 days summer, 90 winter. Open-pollinated.

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!
