USDA Certified Organic. (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. Fruits average l0-12 lbs, about 18" long, and 10" wide at the bowl. Not a good keeper. Whitish-green skin with mottled green stripes. The light yellow flesh is slightly sweet, thick, medium-coarse, and fibrous. Fine for pies and baking. The mashed squash is great when fried with savory herbs.
