What are the pros? Easy to grow, no pests, large

What are the cons? none

Review:

From one hill in mostly shade under my fruit trees we got 4 large squash that look just like the picture in the seed catalog weighing 13 pounds each. The seed cavity is fairly small on the blossom end so most of the squash is all food! We cubed the squash, brushed it lightly with olive oil, roasted it in the oven at 350*, 30-45 minutes until tender and then ate it, like that, made cookies, muffins, or baked it in pie. It is very good, sweet, non-stringy, smooth, slightly moist, flesh. Better than Wiltham butternut. Between extended family and friends they were all gone by Christmas, except for a couple of packages of roasted cubes in the freezer, for baking and side dishes.

What are the pros? Flavor, texture, looks amazing

What are the cons? none

Review:

This squash is delicious and we'll replace our Waltham butternut squash with Rogosa we get that nutty flavor of a Kobocha combined with a Waltham. The texture is great for roasting with olive oil or butter, making soup or even for a savory galette or squash tart. We'll see how it stores over the winter, the Waltham are currently the storage champs but has a fraction of the flavor.

What are the pros? Early producer; med. fruit siz

What are the cons? Needs space; downy mildew

Review:

Grew this in a slightly crowded plot w/ Greek Swt Red & Coraz?n de Panam?. RVG didn't seem to deal as well with the crowding as the other two. The good: RVG produced its first fruit weeks before GSR. Fruits were fairly quick to mature. Showed resistance to black spot fungus. Had to cut a fruit several weeks early b/c of downy mildew, but even the zucchini-like squash was tasty! Good amount of fruit* (see below). The bad: RVG suffered worst of the 3 from downy mildew, and displayed very average susceptibility to powdery mildew. It did respond well (and far better than the CdP) to copper soap, though. The RVG produced several side shoots early on, but then grew slowly and fruit production fell drastically. After an organic bloom-boost fertilizer & trimming back old foliage, RVG produced many side branches w/ several squash on each! I've always been told that the fruits come from the main branch; not so with RVG! Will definitely grow again next year, with more space.

Is this Rogosa Still good

What are the pros? Fast grower, heavy producer

What are the cons? Looks nothing like the picture

Review:

I have 6 of these producing this year from seed I bought in 2014. While quite prolific they look nothing like the picture. They look exactly like Walthams. However they are sweeter than any Waltham I've ever had so not sure what happened. They've done well in our unusually wet summer with up to 10 squash per vine and still putting on.

What are the pros? Good keeper, productive

What are the cons? Appearance

Review:

Tried this one in 2014, and though it was productive, hardy and tasty, none of my squashes looked anything like the picture. Mine looked like your average Waltham. I was still happy with it, but I was sure hoping to get a few bumpy ones!
