'Menina Rajada Seca" squash

Since this selection derived from Cucurbita moschata is grown commercially in Brazil, I am hopeful mine thrives too. I love these long neck type winter squashes as they can be picked when very immature and used like a zucchini, and, when ripe, have deep orange flesh with the seeds in a small cavity at the lower the whole neck is solid meat. I am going to sow the seeds in a buried 55 gallon Water Wise Container Garden in my south bed out back. John
