Open-Pollinated, Non-GMO Galeux d'Eysines Squash Seeds

This unique heirloom squash, whose name means "embroidered with warts," originates from the Bordeaux region of France. Also known as Galeuse d’Eysines and Courge Brodée Galeuse, this treasured squash was originally listed by Vilmorin in Les Plantes Potageres (1883) as Warted Sugar Marrow.  It was later rediscovered by SSE member Amy Goldman in 1996 at the Tranzault Pumpkin Festival in France.

Its unusual appearance, with wart-like extrusions, is cause by sugar in the skin.

The globe shaped squash is unlike anything you have seen or tasted.  Its signature sweet, velvety-rich flesh can be made into stews, baked or roasted.  The French enjoy it in soups, sauces, and preserves.  With a deep orange interior, this 10 - 20 lbs squash will keep your creative and culinary juices flowing with all the different dishes, both sweet and savory, that you and your family can enjoy!

Will store for up to 6 months without any blemishes and stem intact.  Harvest prior to full maturity to prevent cracking.
