Wecome to the cucurbita page. I discuss all things squash related, though some really important squash stories escape me at the moment, I'll try to do research on this subject. Like, how the hubbard got its name. The story of pumpkin pie - which has as much to do with the Pepo group as the Maxima group. How the native Americans cooked their squash, and why the maxima group has such thick skin. Which squash in the Moschata group makes the best soup, verses which Moschata squash accidentally turns to soup when baked. The squash stories could go on and on.
