- None Better Review by Average Joe
- This "squash" (we call them pumpkins) was bought South by the Moravians in the 1700s, and has been grown in Piedmont NC ever since. My family has grown it for almost 2 centuries. Locals call it "Indian River" or "Indian Squaw" pumpkin. It yields well, is the finest "squash" for pumpkin pies, bar none, and is a very good keeper. It also makes a respectable Jack-o-lantern, even if it's a little flat and a little pink as compared to the commercial Halloween pumpkins. (Posted on 3/7/14)
