This selection of Tropical Calabaza Squash is also known as a "Cuban Pumpkin". Large pumpkin-like fruit are produced along trailing vines which may spread 20 feet from the seeding site. Each plant commonly produces two to five round fruits.
Fruits are green with lighter green markings turning tan at maturity. Average Fruit weights range from 15 to 30 lbs.
