Cucurbita maxima

Even though cultivars of this species THRIVED for me in my Denver gardens in the cool dry summers, and have done poorlly for me here in humid Tampa, I am this year trying 'Winter Sweet Meat' and 'Red Kuri' in my quest for dry, nutty sweet orange fleshed  squash to eat raw, baked or in soups.


  1. In the past I've never been able to leave a comment but tried many a time. I had a great run with Lakota last year a WONDERFUL taste and dry texture. I can't recommend it enough.

  2. Yes for months I could not reply to comments here! I grew Lakota some years back....moderate vigor for me. But I was also very stingy with water as usual.
