DESCRIPTION

Unique Ornamental/Edible. Beautiful squash that ranges in color from mottled green, orange, red, yellow to ivory often displaying all of these colors on a single squash. The turban-like cap is on the blossom end. Vigorous vines produce thin, hard shell fruits measuring 10-15" in diameter and weighing 3-5 lb at maturity. Thick, sweet golden yellow flesh has an excellent flavor for roasting, baking, steaming or used in soups and stews. These are very popular as fall decorations and are in great demand at Farmer's Markets.

CLASSIFICATIONS
OPEN POLLINATED

Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
