description for "Winter Squash and Pumpkins: Cucurbita moschata 'Long of Naples'"

A very rare and tasty winter squash is 'Long of Naples'. This Italian variety sports oblong, dark green colored skin that turns tan when stored. Its sweet, orange colored flesh is ideal for roasting, frying or baking. Additionally, this squash is well suited for areas with warm, long growing seasons. Maturity in 85-110 days. Edited by S.
