Welcome to Heritage Harvest Seed!
According to Fearing Burr, John M. Ives of Salem, Massachusetts acquired some Boston Marrow Squash Seed (which he named Autumnal Marrow) from a friend from Northhampton who claimed it originated with a tribe of Indians near Buffalo, NY. It became very popular around Boston for making pies hence the name Boston Marrow. The beautiful squash ripens to an orange color and is hubbard shaped. The very productive vines produce fruit to 20 lbs. and the flesh is golden orange, fine grained and makes the best pumpkin pie I have ever tasted! A very reliable squash that store well if properly cured. The Boston Marrow that is currently sold in North America has a longer neck than the original Boston Marrow. I am still searching for a short neck Boston Marrow and will hopefully be able to offer it in the future.(100 days to maturity) EXTREMELY RARE.
Boston Marrow Squash Seed has 20 seeds per packet.
