This rare winter squash has been cultivated and prized in France since 1880. It is in what the French class as potirons
, that is the species Cucurbita maxima
. The vining plants produce 3 to 4, 6 to 10 pound fruits per plant. The thick, deep orange, fine-flavored flesh of 'Olive' is unequalled for all culinary uses.
Our French heirloom seed is produced organically by a small seed farm in central France. Its production process is monitored by France's rigorous Ecocert program. The seed ships with both an Ecocert certificate and a phytosanitary certificate.
