Turk’s Turban
(Cucurbita maxima)

100 days — Also known as 'French Turban' and 'Turk's Cap', this old heirloom squash has now become a very popular variety for decoration because of its unique and colorful fruit. It resembles a butternut-type but has a cream-colored acorn or "turban" that is colorfully striped with green, yellow, orange, and red.  The ten inch diameter fruit weigh about five pounds and are durable if not bruised. They are fair as a table squash. Vining plant.

Known to exist prior to the 1840s, it was introduced in the United States by James J. H. Gregory in 1865.[1,2,]  Each packet contains three grams, which is about 12 seeds.
