This is a 140 day C. moschata sent to me for grow out by Lilypon as it has high heat requirements and a very long season. The 7-12 lb. Fruits range from round to elongated, start green and turn to Terracotta when ripe. Don't know the final result yet but they are off to a good start. 8/27/07 Vines run all over creation. Actually they cover a 30 ft circle. Poor yield for the space they occupy. Only one squash per vine at 10 lbs each.
