  • Answer this question

    I know (now) that squash, melons and zuchini will cross polinate unless you plant different species of squash in your garden. Does anyone know what species Gete Okosomin is? Cucurbita Maxima? Mixta? Moschata? Pepo?

    • Yes it is Maxima so you do not want to plant other species at the same time unless you do not care to save the seeds the next year.

    What is the flesh like? How long a season is it? Is it sweet? Does it keep for a long time? What is its history?

    • It is a sweet tasting squash that has been around for 800 years, supposedly found in a clay ball and planted,and the seed was still good, this seed is 7 generations out l received my seed from a seed savers exchange member, it grows in Wisconsin mature in about 80 days. I have two in my basement that are still good, picked in Augest. There is a reason the seed is still around after 800 years. Very prolific and the vine can be very aggressive in the garden. Thanks for looking. Doug
