(Cucurbita pepo) (Thelma Sanders Sweet Potato) Family heirloom
from Thelma Sanders in Adair County, Missouri.
The seed was passed from neighbor Everett Pettit
to Sue and Tom Knoche, Ohio squash collectors
and two of SSE’s earliest members. Wonderful
cream-colored acorn squash. Sweet chestnut flavor,
enormously productive. Our favorite two-serving
baking squash. 85-90 days.
