Canada Crookneck


Listed in New England seed catalogs as early as 1827. Now extremely rare and almost extinct. Wonderful creamy texture with an excellent nutty, sweet flavor. Fruits weight 2-4 pounds. Our favorite variety for roasting with a little olive oil. Also great mashing or used for pies or soups. Good disease resistance and well adapted to a wide range of climates. Fruits keep well in storage and will last for months if handled carefully.
