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.
