North Georgia Candy Roaster Winter Squash - Another Forgotten Post

Again a post I meant to publish about a year ago and left as a draft:
Here is a strange looking squash that I painted a week or so ago, North Georgia Candy Roaster:

The SESE catalog tells me "Early 1900s Appalachian Thanksgiving feasts included "candy roaster pie" instead of pumpkin pie." These can grow up to 18 inches long and 6 inches in diameter.
