Review:

This is an update to a previous review. This year all of my buttercups did get the little blue turban on them. We had an extraordinarily wet and cold year and I lost a ton of my squash seeds to rot. These did not seem to be affected and were the second most prolific squash we grew (the other doesn't come from BC). These are very popular with my customers. We have found that these squash are AMAZING if you eat them raw. Very sweet. I actually like them much less when they are cooked. Now we just skin them and eat them as is. I also found that planting seeds in the garlic rows was semi-helpful to reducing squash bugs. The vines start getting big just after it is time to harvest the garlic. But also, this is not the favorite squash of the squash bug. I highly recommend this although they are only good keepers for 1-2 months max.

Review:

Grew these for the first time; high plains of Colorado. They were affected but not a favorite of the squash bugs. Quite prolific even though I planted late and from seed. I'm curious if anyone else planted these and they did not turban? Basically mine look like a dark green version of sweet lightning pumpkins. They are good and popular with customers, but just didn't get the little bottom bump common to turbans.

Review:

Compact vines yield 3 to 5 small pumpkins . Attractive dark green skin . They suit our shorter , cooler summers .The flesh is quite dry , when boiled up . Smooth and sweet when mashed up with a knob of butter and a splash of cream . My only complaint is that they don't last long enough in winter storage .

Review:

the flesh does not have long stringy fibers like some other squash. But since it is compact and dry, the way to cook it is to boil it. (Truncate the top and bottom, peel it, cut in in half, remove the seeds, then cut into wedges and boil in generous water for 30 minutes, then can add salt, brown sugar, butter, or whatever else you want....can then also freeze it in bags.)

Review:

Did well for me this variety. Not the longest keeper I've grown but astonishingly sweet flavor & golden flesh, maybe even a bit too sweet. Great size, bit bigger than a Futsu. Ideal for all round use, dinner and sweet meals
