110 days to harvest Cucurbita moschata

After years of appreciating Long Island Cheese pumpkin, we instantly fell in love with Gouda, her little sister. Organic Gouda Winter Squash 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.

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.

    Oh my goodness! These grew prolifically. I had lots to give away to neighbors and family and still had plenty for our needs. They are just the right size for making pie or for dinner. Good in both sweet and savory dishes. No disease or pest issues for me in a very wet year.
