(Cucurbita pepo) (aka Livingston’s Pie Squash) Introduced in 1893 by Johnson & Stokes of Philadelphia. Amy Goldman, author of The Compleat Squash, says it is “the finest pie stock in the land.” Fruits average 6 pounds, making them the perfect size for two pies. Orange rind is covered in delicate netting; flesh is smooth, sweet, and fiber-free. Not the best keeper, so enjoy it for Thanksgiving or early winter. 85-100 days.
