Here is the Tatume, Cucurbita pepo, and is also know as the tatuma. Popular in Mexico and south Texas, this squash is very much a gourd when it turns orange! It is eaten when its small. The vine can grow up to 20' long and put out as many as 12 per vine. If left to cure an dry through out the winter and can be made into a bird house! Tatume is one of the rarest varieties of squash that can be harvested as either a summer or winter type. The fruits of the Tatume squash are round or oblate in shape. It's PM/DM resistant and will come up on its own if left out all winter.  We found it to bitter for our taste but still fun to grow! Open pollinated 70-80 days.
