Afghani Green Zebra Squash

Cucurbita maxima

Very rare. From the Martin Seed Collection and years of participation in the Seed Savers Exchange, this seed came from a lady who had migrated to the Czech Republic from Afghanistan. Finding it hard to grow the squash in the cooler Czech climate, she shared the seed on the exchange in the hopes of preserving it. She said in the original correspondence that, "It is big enough to feed a village." Indeed it is and we have fed the High Desert Seed village with this squash, giving large hunks of it as party favors at our annual harvest party. Large (maybe 40lbs), dark green, with stripes originating from its blossom end.
