Organic Gouda Winter Squash
110 days to harvest | Cucurbita moschata
After years of appreciating Long Island Cheese pumpkin, we instantly fell in love with Gouda, her little sister. Gouda is also much sweeter as well as resistant to powdery mildew, HOORAY!
If you struggle with squash vine borers, you’ll be relieved to know that Gouda is Cucurbita moschata rather than Cucurbita pepo, so those voracious borers are less attracted to the thinner, less succulent vines.
Gouda is also a fantastic storage squash; we consistently are making pies in April, in awe of her tenacity.
We are endlessly thankful for the countless generations of indigenous seedkeepers who laid the foundation for everything we eat today, including gems like Gouda from Cornell’s plant breeding program.
