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!

What are the pros? By Far the best tasting Squash

What are the cons? I did not plant more

Review:

I had one extra plant so I put this guy in the raised bed. Needless to say, he took over. He had about 6 different vines and produced about 12 squash. The taste of these were the best out of the 10 varieties that I planted. I fried them like potatoes and they were beyond superb! The size is great because you can use up one squash per meal and not have any left over, as compared to some of the larger (naples ) squash. I trellised some of the other Rogosa plants and they did great, not being to big and heavy to fall off the vine ( like my 30 lb Candy Roaster).

Review:

I planted several squash varieties this year (2013) and this is one of my all-time favorites!!! These grow with very little care and produce numerous big tasty fruits that taste exquisite!!! I tossed a little red volcanic ash into the soil and all my squash grew almost like "Jack and the Beanstalk" !!! A must for beginners!!! Thanks Baker Creek!!! :)

What are the pros? Hardy & amazing flavor

What are the cons? low germination

Review:

I cannot do with out this squash now. I won't bother with Waltham-this is my butternut of choice. The plant weathered the squash bugs and the wilt after, out producing the 11 other varieties I planted. The flavor is sweeter and richer than other butternuts. I have one right now in my pantry & it is April- it stores well too!

Review:

First of all, this year is my first year gardening and many other seedlings didn't survive. But this squash plant did amazing even during the extreme drought in early summer. I'm actually pretty surprised because I planted it early from some things i read online about this squash and got a full-grown fruit in less than 2 months! Because the stems were getting tan and it was developing small spots from being on the ground too long I picked them, and they were much tastier than normal winter Butternuts. Well, that wasn't then end of it.. It's September now and to date I have harvested 30 or so squash ranging from 2-8 lbs! Only 3-4 were bumpy like the picture, and some grew round like a pumpkin, but all of them tasted great! I kind of wondered if they were cross pollinated because they did so well. Haven't read anything else about this seed producing fruit so fast. Needless to say I'll plant again next year.
