Extra large squash blossoms and lots of them! With added interest from chefs and market customers we set out to make a better maxima winter squash bred specifically for the production of these tasty treats. We focused the breeding on selecting plants that produce more male blossoms with increased size.  Chefs love the large size because they can put fewer on a plate lowering the plate cost and keeping the customer happy. We sell hundreds of these a week for up to a dollar each, making it one of the most profitable crops on the farm! We pick in the late morning when blossoms are dry but before bugs move in.
