Buttercup Cucurbita maxima

Cucurbita maxima, one of at least five species of cultivated squash, is one of the most diverse domesticated species. This species originated in South America from the wild Cucurbita andreana over 4000 years ago. The two species hybridize quite readily but have noticeably different calcium levels.

Many cultivars of Cucurbita maxima have been developed. As in C. pepo, plants exist with a “bush habit” that is particularly evident in young plants, but older plants grow in the wild-type vining manner.
