In trials over 2 years the Cucurbita maxima cultivars Exposicao and Coroa IAC and the interspecific hybrids Tetsukabuto, Lavras 1 and Lavras 2 were evaluated for yields (t/ha), flesh thickness, number of fruits/ha and mean fruit weight. The highest yields were obtained with Exposicao (13.26 t/ha) and Lavras 2 (11.32 t/ha). Tetsukabuto gave the highest number of fruits/ha (5694-9805), and the cultivars were superior to the hybrids for mean fruit weight.
