HOW TO GROW WINTER SQUASH MAXIMA

Start indoors 3–4 weeks before last frost, plant out 2 weeks after last frost. Start 3 seeds in flats or 4” pots, thin to 1-2 plants. Direct seed after last frost or soil 70˚F. Seeds will rot in cool wet soil. 5-6 seeds to a 12” diameter hill or disturbed area. Can transplant end of last frost with row cover. Cucurbita maxima is typically cultivated in cooler areas than C. moschata or C. angyrosperma. Cure in warm dry place such as a garage for one week after harvest.

Native American heirloom, one of the three sisters. 5-10lbs fruit. Early maturing Maxima, usually the first winter squash as early September. Fine grained thick flesh, good flavor and sweetness, good storage squash. From the Hidatsa tribe. Tradition says that the tribe came from Miniwakan, or Devils Lake, in what is now North Dakota. The Hidatsas, called Minitaris by the Mandans, are a Siouan linguistic tribe. Their language is closely akin to that of the Crows with whom they claim to have once formed a single tribe. In 1804 Lewis and Clark found the Hidatsas in three villages at the mouth of the Knife River, and the Mandans in two villages a few miles lower down on the Missouri. Today our heirloom strain is from the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota. Tags: Harvest: Early, Color: Brown, Size: Large, Specialty: Drought Tolerant, Specialty: Storage, Heritage: Heirloom, Season: Late Summer Fall, Certification: Organic.
