Cornfield- 85 days. I first obtained this from the National Seed Storage Lab back in 1983. An impressive old variety from pre Civil War days. Very productive and has a very great shape. The big problem is it does not have a strong stem. I grew it for  a few years and then it got lost in the  freezer storage when my squash collection grew to over 700 types. I found it last winter andI decided to  get it going again. Planted in 2021 ( seed from 1987) on July 6  and it did fabulous and had  a huge crop ripe by early October. Pkt. $2.00 Certified Organic Seed
