Lakota Squash

Lakota

Cucurbita maxima


Lakota Squash

Very good for cooking.

A unique variety, once cherished by the Lakota Sioux, and distinctly pear-shaped. The skin color is a variegated green and orange, although some fruit will be entirely orange and others entirely green. The fine-grained orange flesh has a sweet and nutty flavor. Has baking qualities similar to Hubbard squash. The crimson-orange flesh is also delicious when raw grated in salads or slaw but also good in chili.

Lakota is a red heirloom from the American Midwest and is also called the Red Lakota. They make for a delightful display when mixed with their Blue Lakota cousins.

Growing: This is a vining Hubbard type squash that grows to about 7-8 lbs. and will normally have 3-5 squash per plant. It does very well in Northern climates where many other squash have a hard time reaching maturity. This squash is an excellent climber and is recommended for growing on a lattice or fence.
