Galeux d’Eysines Squash
Cucurbita maxima 'Galeux d’Eysines'
Duration: Annual
When to Sow: Spring Ease of Germination: Easy
(Peanut squash) A crazy looking French heirloom from Eysines in the Bordeaux region of southwestern France. It goes back to at least the 1880s. The skin turns pink when ripe and warty protrusions appear that look like peanut shells -- which is why this squash is known as "peanut squash". The protrusions develop as the sugar content accumulates, so the more "peanuts" there are, the sweeter the squash is. When cooked, the bright orange flesh has a smooth velvety texture and a sweet taste of sweet potato and apple. Can be cooked and pureed for soups, sauces, preserves and pies, and can be grilled, roasted or baked. Vigorous and productive. 95-100 days.
