Mayo Giant Pumpkin (Lagenaria siceraria)
Mayo Giant Pumpkin (Lagenaria siceraria): cultivated by the Mayo people in Mexico, it has a unique peculiarity: rodents don't like it, hence, by growing it around vegetables and gardens, we have managed to avoid the ISTRICI and mice.
The plant is vigorous and ripe fruits reach 60 cm. Each plant covers about 15-20 square mt, depending on the irrigation. It is highly resistant to Oidium and other plant diseases common to Pumpkin. Cultivate it around the species that porcupines are fond of, as a barrier.
