100 days — Also known as 'French Turban', 'Turk's Cap' or 'Turk's Head', this old heirloom squash has now become a very popular variety for decoration because of its uniquely shaped and beautifully 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 vining-type plants, produce ten inch diameter fruit weigh about five pounds and are quite durable, if not bruised. Along with their ornamental value, they are fair as a table squash.

Known to exist prior to the 1840s, 'Turk's Turban' was commercially introduced in the United States by James J. H. Gregory in 1865.[1,2,] Each packet contains four grams, which is about 16 seeds.
