3205-LO Cucurbita maxima
(Banana. 105 days.)
Yes—we have blue bananas, right here in the Maritimes! Hailing from Guatemala (as all squash once came from Central America), Guatemalan Blue Banana grows 15-18” long, 6” diameter, sky blue-grey skinned fruits. Prolific and easy producers. I’ve prepared them by slicing them into rings, scooping out the seeds, and filling with an apple/nut stuffing to roast. No one can resist!
