|Pumpkin Seeds - 'Cushaw Green Striped' Be the first one to write a review|
Vegetable Description: This Native American heirloom squash, whose common name of "Cushaw" comes from the Algonquin word coscushaw, has also been marketed as the Tennessee Sweet Potato because of its sweetness. New York seed man Grant Thorburn called it the Green Striped Bell in his 1847 catalog, and it was also sold beginning in 1883 by W. Atlee Burpee Co. Since Cushaw Green Striped resists squash vine borers, commercial farmers in the southern region rely on this variety for a good fall crop. Many Southern gardeners also prefer this variety for pies because of its superior taste.
