Welcome to Heritage Harvest Seed!
Canada Crookneck Squash Seed is a very old heirloom more than likely grown by the Iroquois Indians. It was not introduced commercially until 1834 by Boston seedsman Charles H. Hovey, but certainly grown prior to that time for a number of years. The fruit is up to 12 inches in length and 4-6" at the base and the skin is a dull yellow that fades in storage. If cured properly, the fruit stores well. The flesh is of excellent quality and a deep gold orange color. This squash is excellent baked but I have also used the very young fruit raw in salads. Very drought tolerant. EXTREMELY RARE!
Canada Crookneck Squash Seed has 10 seeds per packet.
