Cucurbita pepo ‘Pink banana jumbo’
If you were an American Pioneer in the 1890’s you probably ate a Pink Banana Squash! In fact it was a favorite back then.
These pink banana like squash with their velvety skin can grow up 24” in length and weigh 10lbs. Some plants have 30 fruits so don’t plant too many. No wonder the pioneers liked them-think of the pies they could make. Plant the seed one inch deep, directly into the garden- someplace warm ,well-drained and with a lot of space. Add compost, a lot of water and some love ;your squash and you will be in the pink in just 50 days.
