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, it was commercially introduced in the United States by James J. H. Gregory
Each packet contains four grams, which is about 16 seeds.
