Green Striped Cushaw Squash

(C. argyrosperma) 110 days. [Pre-1893, possibly pre-1860. Cushaws came from the West Indies, earlier than 1700.] This bulb-shaped squash is a reliable producer and the most popular of its class. Large, vigorous vines are resistant to squash vine borer and Downy Mildew. Fruits average 10-12 lbs, about 18 in. long, and 10 in. wide at the bowl. Not a good keeper. Whitish-green skin with mottled green stripes. Thick, light yellow flesh is slightly sweet and medium-coarse. Fine for pies and baking. The mashed squash is great when fried with savory herbs. Pkt (4 g, ~18 seeds)
