800Year Old Big Old Squash

An archaeological dig on the Menemonee Reservation in Wisconsin yielded a clay pot.


The pot was dated to 800 years ago and contained seeds.

Some of the seeds were planted to see if 800 year old seeds were viable.

An ancient Squash was the result.

They named it "Gete Okosomin", roughly translated  "Really Cool Old Squash" or "Big Old Squash", depending on the translation.
