'Lower Salmon River'
         (Cucurbita maxima) Certified Naturally Grown Seed

90 days — This Pacific Northwest heirloom variety probably originated from local Native American agriculture.  It is an all around attractive variety.  The vines are hardy and stayed healthy here on the farm until the first frost of the fall.  The fruits are squat with a slight turban at the blossom end.  The rinds are thin, but cure very hard, and are a beautiful pinkish / pale-orange color.  The orange flesh is fine textured, very tasty and excellent cooked, eaten as raw slivers, or baked.  It also makes excellent pies.  Stores very well.

Once very rare, more and more people have discovered the virtues of 'Lower Salmon River' squash and are now growing it in their gardens.  This helps to ensure that it is not lost.

Our original seeds were sent to us by Wayne and Connie Burleson of Montana who have been growing them since they were given two seeds back in the early 1990s.  Connie told us that she bakes them in an oven at 350F for one hour in a pan with a little water, then scoops out the sides and serves.  For a variation, she sometimes adds sliced apples, cinnamon and honey while baking.

Although this Pacific Northwest heritage vegetable has not yet officially been selected as an "Ark of Taste" variety, it was nominated for consideration in November, 2013. Each packet contains two grams, which is approximately 9 to 10 seeds.

Rare and in very limited supply.
Customer Reviews Average Rating review
These out grew and out produced every other squash that we grew last year. Six plants produced twenty large (ripe) super tasty squash and if we hadn't had such a terrible growing season, there would have been at least ten more. It's March and we still have some that look perfect in storage.
