Cucurbita maxima (95-105 days) Bred by David Podoll, this buttercup-type variety was a cross between Hubbard, Gold Nugget and other maximas. For over 40 years the Podoll family has been selecting for deep orange color, thick flesh, rich taste, sweetness, smooth texture, vigor and hardiness in cold weather. This is a real work-horse variety with the ability to produce solid yields in variable conditions. This full-flavored, rich tasting squash stars as a side-dish and is an excellent player in pies and desserts.
Soil Temp. for Germ.: 70-85 degrees F; Planting Depth: 1 inch; Plant Spacing: 2 seeds/ft. in rows 5-6 ft. apart; Days to Germ.: 6-10; Full Sun; Moderate Water. Days to Maturity: 95-105. Cut from vines; store in dry place with good air circulation at room temperature until stems are dry. For fully cured squash with peak flavor, cure 1-2 months. Stores well in a cool basement most of the winter.
