description for "Winter Squash and Pumpkins: Cucurbita maxima 'Marina Di Chioggia'"

Widely recognized by its odd and unattractive fruit is 'Marina Di Chioggia' winter squash. This variety sports large, round, greyish/green skin that is deeply warted. Beneath this rough exterior lies sweet tasting, dry flesh, which improves with storage. Enjoy in soups and pastas. Maturity in 95-100 days. Edited by S. Derr
