'Galeux d' Eysines' Certified Naturally Grown Seed
Cucurbita maxima

100 days — This squash was sent to us by a supporter of ours named Terry Welter who just happens lives just down the road from us in Oregon City, Oregon. He had been growing the variety for some years, noticed that we did not offer it, and believed that we should. Terry was right . . . it is an awesome variety!

'Galeux d' Eysines', also known as 'Galeuse d' Eysines', 'Courge Brodee Galeuse', 'Giraumon Galeux d' Eysines' and 'Warted Sugar Marrow',[2,3,4] is an extremely vigorous, healthy and productive variety. Its name roughly translates into English as "embroidered squash from Eysines."

The fruits are beautifully "ugly," weigh between ten and fifteen pounds each and mature to a salmon colored rind that is covered in warts. They have very thick, orange colored, fine-grained flesh that is sweet and excellent sautéed, roasted, baked or used for pie or soup.

Reportedly an heirloom variety originally from the Bordeaux region France.[1] Click here for instructions on curing and storing winter squash. Each packet contains three grams, which is approximately nine seeds.
