50 days. Colorful light green scalloped-shaped fruit, tender and good quality; excellent yields, easy to grow. We have grown this variety for many years; an old favorite. Good color for market.

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.

What are the pros? pretty.

What are the cons? not hardy at all. hard to grow

Review:

Chose these based on the earliness, thought it might help with the short New England growing season. Well, I've tried it several years now, in several locations & I am disappointed. Very low germination rate. In addition, seems highly susceptible to every problem in the book from blossom end rot to powdery mildew. To top it all off all plants had a very low yield/flowering rate. i just don't think these are well suited to my area.

Review:

This plant is HUGE! I underestimated just how big it would get. I'm in Tucson, Arizona and it is handling the heat very well. The leaves are almost 12 inches wide and the plant is about 2 feet talk with stalks 1.5 inches thick. It still has a lot of growing to do but even at this "small" size I have about a dozen blossoms between two plants. It is growing faster than any other of my plantings by a long way. Judging from it's progress so far I'm planning on a large harvest that should last all summer long.

a question...
 
Review:

Can anyone comment on the growing habit of this squash? It is described as a bush type, but I've seen mention of it 'vining'. Trying to fit it in a small spot in the PNW! Thank you in advance. All of your comments are super helpful.
