110 days — This variety was first documented back to 1831 by Fearing Burr, the author of Field & Garden Vegetables of America. An heirloom to the Buffalo, New York area, it was first distributed to select members of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society by Mr. Ives in the Spring of 1833 and quickly became available as a commercial variety shortly thereafter.

From this historic introduction, Boston Marrow soon became one of the most important commercial squashes for 150 years.

Once you taste the melt-in-your-mouth "pumpkin" pie that this squash yields, you'll be making it as often as possible. Sweet, carrot-orange flesh, cooks to a creamy, custardy texture for perfect pies, puddings and breads.

Contains 15 heirloom seeds
