Cucurbita maxima. These beautiful, dark orange, pear shaped squash are a special treat. Just the right size for a meal, 3-4 pounds, they are delicious roasted, made into soup, and even stuffed. Add in excellent yields, and you have an all-around wonderful squash. Kamaile gave one to the mail man, and he came back a few days later asking for another one!

I have been growing squash since the late 1960s. Last season I tried Potimarron squash from Annies, WOW.. My Wife and I were amazed after the first bite of this squash. I may never plant a different kind again. Smooth not grainy, Taste was unreal. Please try this squash.
Excellent grower. Awesome flavor. I even canned up a few to have this winter. Looking forward to next spring time planting!! This is a beautiful all around squash!
