squash hand book
This is a sweet potato squash, an heirloom variety.   It grows very long vines, 20 feet and more, that will climb fences, hedges, possibly trees, due to tendrils that hook on objects and then coil tight, pulling the vine up.  The flesh is like pumpkin, but milder.  We’ve had big heavy fruit on vines up 5-6 feet in air on hedges or climbing a flowering cherry.  It is resistant to squash vine borer, loves good light, it is a smart, independent-minded vine.
