Students discovered the seeds buried in a clay pot on Wisconsin's Menemonee Reservation.
When they opened it up, they were met with a pile of strange seeds that they determined were over 800 years old. Is it just me, or do these seeds look like tiny, oval-shaped pancakes?
While not all of the seeds produced fruit, some grew this once-extinct squash.
Imagine seeing these at your local farmer's market. The students named the squash "gete-okosomin," or "really cool old squash."
There won't be any shortage of seeds moving forward.
Each squash appears to be roughly the size of a Chipotle burrito.
These students put in a lot of hard work, and it's finally time for them to enjoy the fruits of their labor. After all, it isn't often that archaeologists get to eat their discoveries.
