Squash 'Musquee de Provence' has large deeply ridged, flat, green fruits that turn a dusky salmon in storage. The flesh is deep orange with a sweet flavor. The fruits can weigh up to 30 pounds!
This French heirloom was introduced to the USA in 1895. It is known for having a long shelf life. Our squash lasted over 4 months in storage and we were eating it in March. It is one of the juicyest squash I have ever cooked. It has a rice like texture, so I find it best when it is blended and made into pie, pudding and soup.
Sowing Squash Seeds:
