(Cucurbita maxima) Belongs to the Banana group of squashes, noted for
their fine table quality. This selection is dark “blue”
with light stripes; golden-yellow flesh is thick and firm.
Fruits range up to 20 inches in length and average 5
pounds. We like to keep this one in the refrigerator
after the initial cutting and continue to slice off small
rings that can be either baked or roasted. 90-95 days.
