Fortna White Pumpkin Squash Seeds, Organic

Cucurbita argyrosperma

Large, pear-shaped fruit have pale-orange flesh with a memorable, mild, and slightly sweet flavor ideal for making pumpkin pies and many other sweet and savory dishes. This cushaw (winter) squash has variably-sized necks and cream-colored skin with light-green stripes. Highly vining, productive plants bear pumpkins that weigh from five to eight pounds. Seed Savers Exchange received this variety from the Landis Valley Village and Farm Museum in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. It was grown by Wayne Fortna of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, from the 1940s until his passing in 1990. Wayne tended this variety with particular care, ensuring there would always be a white pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. 90-100 days.
