Here's a picture of one of our favorite winter squashes. This is a selection I stabilized back in the 90s from Warsaw Buff Pie Pumpkin, which is a variable shaped butternut/cheese type squash.
I received seed for the Warsaw Buff Pie Pumpkin in 1984, from a customer at Owen's Supervalue grocery store (Warsaw, Indiana). The old fellow who gave me a squash had a truck load of buff colored squash: some round (like in this picture), some like large fat butternuts. I asked him what it was called and he said he'd grown it for over 30 years and didn't know of a name.
I received a "round" squash and saved seed to plant in 1985. That seed produced fruit of a couple of shapes and sizes. It was the best winter squash I ever had!
When our family left to live in Mexico I continued to grow and hand pollinate this squash, always selecting for the round fruited variation. By the mid 90s we only produced the pumpkin shaped fruit. But then, I realized that I had lost the original strain!
When we came back to the USA I contacted a friend in Tulsa, to whom I'd sent some of that original seed. He had some frozen, from his first grow out (1985). He sent me some of that seed and I grew that out in 2006. So, now I have both strains.
Anyway, I thought I'd share this picture. Our crop was small this year as I got it in late and planted it in a spot with too much shade.
