Amish Pie Squash is an extra-large winter squash variety developed by Amish farmers in the mountains of Maryland. Released in 1999, this pumpkin/winter squash is heart-shaped and looks like a really big acorn. The outer skin is a pale orange with light speckling in some instances. Amish Pie Squash can get very large, up to 60 to 80 pounds in ideal conditions. This is a great pumpkin for soups, pies, breads and other baked goods. The inside has a plethora of delicious meat with at least 5" of rich pumpkin flesh that's moist and sweet.


Growing Information

Amish Pie Squash may be direct seeded or transplanted, although we highly recommend direct seeding. To ensure a good stand, we recommend planting seeds every 12" along the intended row. Once plants emerge, thin plants to one every 2 feet. Winter Squash can be susceptible to plant diseases like downy mildew and powdery mildew if leaves receive excess moisture. As a result, we recommend using drip irrigation on winter squash to reduce plant moisture and feed plants more effectively. During periods of heavy rainfall, using a fungicide like Liquid Copper can help to alleviate disease pressure as well.

Winter Squash are a crop that will produce a one-time harvest at the end of the growing season. They should be harvested when plants die back and the fruits obtain their full color. Stem hardness is also an indication of fruit maturity. Once stems harden, fruits are ready for harvest using a set of pruning shears. Winter Squash can be stored in a cool, dry place for several months, depending on variety and sugar content. Once fruits are harvested, remove the plants from the garden to prevent any fungal spores from overwintering and becoming a problem in future years. Proper crop rotation is extremely important with all pumpkin varieties to reduce disease and pest pressure.

I grew these this past summer-didn’t look at all like the picture above, but they are the best tasting pumpkin/squash I’ve ever had. Vine borers really got after these, and the heat made them struggle, but I got a good many pumpkins. One was 33 lbs!

Loved this squash. Mine didn’t grow super big, mainly due to bad compost. But it tastes fine, I used it in a soup!
