Cucurbita maxima


Gold Nugget

Our earliest variety is Gold Nugget (AAS 1966), an orange-fleshed squash with softball sized fruit from North Dakota State University (NDSU). It is a bush squash, producing 5 or 6 fruits per plant. The fruit should keep 3 to 4 months, however, we have had fruits keep for up to a year (the ones cut open in the photo).
