Muscat de Provence squash is a round, flattened squash with deep ribbing. Probably more people would look at this and say “pumpkin” rather than squash. To boot, it has a dark green rind ripening to orange.
It is beautiful enough to use as an ornamental as well as for eating.
It will weigh 2 to 9 kg (5 to 20 pounds.) It has thick, firm flesh, with a rich, sweet taste.
It grows on a vine-type plant, with vines that can grow up to 6 metres (6 ½ yards) long, with 2 to 5 squash per plant.
80 to 100 days from seed.
Muscat de Provence squash was developed in Provence, France.
