OriginNortheastern United States[1]

Turban squash, also known as "Turk's turban" or "French turban" ("Giraumon" in French), is a type of squash most often used as a winter squash. It is an heirloom, predating 1820.[2] A cultivar of Cucurbita maxima, it is closely related to the buttercup squash.[3] It is typically 6 pounds when mature.[2] Colors vary, but are often mottled in shades of orange, green, and white.[3] The squash is used as both a vegetable and as an ornamental gourd.[4][5] Taste is similar to other C. maxima cultivars, though "not as vibrant,"[4] "reminiscent to hazelnut,"[3] and "coarse, watery and insipid."[6] Known in the nineteenth century as "the most beautiful in color, and the most worthless in quality, of all the varieties of squash;"[6] More recently, Ian Knauer, author of "The Farm", has described it as "nutty and sweet".[7]

Two variety or cultivars:

  • Turk's turban: a medium size tricolor gourd with red cap and red, green and white turban.
  • Mini red turban: a small size bicolor gourd with red cap and white turban (sometimes with narrow red stripes). Like a mushroom.
