The plant isn't dead yet. But, we just had to try one of them.....17.5 lbs. This is fun and tasty. Chopped part of it up and roasted it like a butternut squash with salt, pepper, cinnamon and touch of cayenne. It will just get sweeter as the others cure on the vine:

Today we are eating a "Pumpkin" pie made from a butterneck squash. It is good and it only used half the squash

never seen anything around here like that. looks like it's a member of the crookneck squash family so should have no trouble growing them. i dont eat squash but i'd use these for autumn decor. ~Georgia

I love those! I make pumpkin pie with them. They are so meaty compared to pumpkin, keep well and very easy to grow!

@Hiro, do you recall the name on the seed packet?

It wasn't from a seed packet. During last year's seed shortage, the farm boss started exchanging seeds with people all over the southeast US. The cushaw seeds came from one of her exchange partners near Anderson, SC that retains seeds from his garden.
