 Never got a pm from you??? Maybe try again.

Seminole pumpkin is much like a butternut squash but rounded and a bit sweeter albeit less flesh to them overall.  Might be worth trying to hybridize them with butternut and select for sweetness and higher flesh ratios. On their own Seminole pumpkin is super hardy compared to the conventional varieties.  Very little mildew issues. Roots vigorously as it runs. Highly productive if happy. Squash borers dont mess with them as badly either. Edibility is good too.

Hey DG,
Wanted to try growing these Seminole Pumkins in Puerto Rico. Keep seeing them is a Sancocho. A typical stew.
You think they grow good in subtropical climate?
Not much a plant guy, more fruits.
Can get you moringa, Uvaria rufa, mountain soursop, tamarind(sour type), curcumin, you give me idea....
If not just need about 10 seeds and Iíll pay you.
Let me know, this message system is bugging.

I think they should do well down there. Do real well in our heat in Florida como ared to other squashes. 

I'd trade you for a handful of moringa seeds. Peopke always interested in it here.
