Review:

For those who thought I didn't wait long enough to truly review the variety, I tended this variety until the second week of August, until powdery mildew took it over. Only 4 small fruit all that time. Plants looked healthy until end of August week 1.

Review:

with this odd summer weather our season is delayed, but I"m finally getting fruit on our squash plants - except for this variety. Only male blossoms and not a single squash in sight while the golden arrow and dark green produce a storm.

What are the pros? Tasty, easy to grow

What are the cons? Very late

Review:

I plant this side by side, on the same day, with the hybrid Zephyr yellow/green crookneck summer squash. The Zephyr plants have pumped out dozens of squash before the Bennings produce a single fruit. The fruits are very attractive and tasty, but a bit bland. They are recommended by many sources as the best heirloom summer squash. These squash freeze well. I grate them with a large grater in my food processor and freeze them in "globs." Then I add a glob or two to soups, stews and casseroles all winter. The grated squash "melts" down and just adds more body to the dish. The plants don't wilt at the slightest drought, and are somewhat tolerant of the ubiquitous squash bugs we get in Virginia. I pick the bugs and eggs off once a week. We haven't had too much trouble with vine borers, but plant extra just in case. We probably lose 20 percent of our summer squash plants to borers each summer. I would probably grow these again, but if I had to choose, I'd pick Zephyr.

What are the pros? Easy bush plants

What are the cons? few female blossoms=few fruitt

Review:

Great plant for everything but yield. Love the taste although must pick small, no disease or pest problems. Not worth growing for me anymore - all male blossoms, very few female! I am allergic to dairy so cannot stuff or use the male blossoms. I have a small garden with 5 squash plants and have gotten one small squash off the plants so far (plants in the ground since June) with another just starting to grow and eight more blossoms, all male. It was the same last year. I will not grow this variety again.
