(C. moschata) 100 days An Italian Butternut-type squash, these have a violin shape and wrinkled tan skin. The flesh is deep orange and sweet, perfect for desserts, roasting, stuffing and baking. Good for marketing.

Review:

Where to begin? I have nothing but good things to say about this amazing squash. I have one that has kept in the kitchen for more than a year now - excellent storage life. And the flavor is superb. The best squash I have ever eaten. Much better than waltham butternut. This will be a staple in my garden for my lifetime. THE BEST squash on the market!

Review:

This is the first year I've tried growing this variety of butternut squash. I really like the flavor; it's the most flavorful butternut my family has ever tried. It also grows about twice the size of a normal butternut squash. However, I had a lot start to grow reach about 10 inches long and then start to rot from the bottom up. I would have to say 70% of the ones that started to grow rotted. This may not be typical though because we had a bad drought up here this summer, and even watering every day the plants were dry. I am definitely going to grow it again next year though; the taste is that good!

What are the pros? Small seed cavities, large

What are the cons? Powdery Mildew

Review:

I grew this with the Greek Sweet Red for comparison. While the fruits were larger than the Greeks, it produced fewer fruits per plant and less overall. This plant grows easily and the stem from the fruit is strong, I never had to sling these fruits and some of them hung 5 feet from the ground, even at 8 pounds. Didn't bat an eyelash at our 2 month long 115 degree "end of summer heat wave" as long as I kept them watered and mulched. The fruit is large, and the seed cavity is small in comparison to its size; in other words, one fruit is feeding a family of 5 and you're pureeing the left-overs for butternut squash pie or biscuits. I prefer the Rogosa for savory recipes, like gnocci or bisquits, and the Greek Sweet red for desserts like pie or sweet breads. Both make a fantastic soup. I was able to store these for at least 4 months after harvest. Grow this variety for great taste, fairly good yields, and filling meals. Although it got powdery mildew, the plants grew back and produced.

I had a problem with this squash. We only got three squash from three plants. The squash would start to grow but would rot when they were 6 to 10 inches long.

What are the pros? Energetic producer, delicious

Review:

Everything happens for a reason. Both online and store were out of the one I wanted. This one looked interesting so I purchased a substitute and stuck two seeds into opposite sides of my raised bed garden. The vines were attractive and well behaved until they discovered the trellis. They totally exploded. My family jokingly called them "the peanut vine". The largest "peanut" measured a whopping 20 inches and weighed almost 10 pounds. Smallest is 17 inches, 7-3/4 pounds. So far 6 fruit total, picked the first one mid-July. I still have 2 more coming. We ate one over two meals: first half was made into a side of roasted squash with a touch of cinnamon and maple syrup. Made the other half into roasted apple-butternut bisque today. Kept well in the fridge. The others are curing in our basement. Will see how well they keep. So far -- Fantastic. Will be planting this one next year for certain. Sorry, Waltam, this Bambina has you beat!!!
