Tennessee Sweet Potato Pumpkin

Post by FarmerDi » Thu, 30 Oct 1997 04:00:00



Have any of you run across a seed listing for the Tennessee Sweet potatao
 Pumpkin. This is an ancient pumpkin listed in Burpee's 1888 catalog. The last
 list I saw was Shumway in the late '70's. It has the shape and size of a Blue
 Hubbard, but the smooth thin skin and green on white markings of a Green
 Striped Cushaw. Actually It is sort of like a neckless Green Striped Cushaw.
Thanks

Dill
