Cucurbita maxima

Guatemalan Blue Banana is an Heirloom Squash variety that is native to Central and South America.  The fruit is long and oval shaped up to around 50cm, with dark blue skin and lighter coloured stripes. The inside fruit is orange, tasting similar to a butternut pumpkin with a sweet nutty flavour.   Stores well, very productive vine, excellent to bake or roast.

Squash should be sown direct where it is to be planted, after frost, as it needs a warm soil to germinate.  Sow seed approx. 2mm deep, full sun, moist well drained soil, high in nitrogen, compost well.  Germination approx. 8 - 12 days.  Maturity approx. 90 days.  Harvest fruit when vine dries out.
