Notes : Squash is a plant whose fruit can be extremely varied in size, from the few centimetres of the ornamental species, to the 3 meters of the Atlantic Giant cultivar. Different shapes of the fruit also exist, with different tastes. The Squash is present in many myths from all over the world, an element which makes difficult to locate precisely the geographical origin of the species.
