Turks turban squash seeds- are they any good?
I've just opened up the turban squash I bought last october (it made for an excellent bookend in the kitchen). It was absolutely fine, still very firm and not a sign of mould nor squishy spots, but OH was getting concerned and grumbling ('can't we at least get a new squash?'). Now I have allllll these lovely plump white seeds which I've cleaned off and are drying on the counter. Does anyone know if they will be viable? If so would any one like to swap for something? Thanks!

Try planting one and see if it sprouts If they sprout - and I don't see why they shouldn't - I would love to try one as they look so interesting!Happy Gardening,
I've got 6 in some scrummy potting soil. Must stop checking every half hour- I love a weird or quirky squash, so I'll be a bit bummed if non of these come up!

Beware, they do like to ramble and climb, almost vine like in their growth

What do you want to swap for........Tx
Maybe not tomatoes, courgetts, cucs, lettuces or melons as I love 'em but my greenhouse is at maximum capacity. Anything which will survive outside or at least stored till next year.

Hi Llamas, I'm growing Turks Turban this year and I've heard mixed reviews on if they are good eating or not - did you eat yours and was it good? (and how did you cook it too?)
