(C. moschata) 100 days An old favorite. Good yields with excellent-tasting, rich, orange-colored flesh. Great baked!

Review:

May 10, 2014: I direct-sowed two seeds in my small garden patch. Both seeds germinated. The plants were watered once per week during the hottest part of the summer. The first squash was harvested at 115 days. To cure the squash, we placed them on a screen stretched between two saw-horses. It is now April 2015, and we are about to eat the last squash!

Amazing yield

EarlyMaturity 3.5
 

What are the pros? Germination yield

What are the cons? None

Review:

Excellent germination, hardy plants, easy to grow and a family favorite for flavor and texture. When they say "good yields" they are being conservative. We have had consistently HUGE yields of this squash. Once harvested it holds well in sheltered environment, well into the spring. This one never disappoints.

Vine Borer Resistant
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 3.0
 

What are the pros? Bug Resistant, Stores well

What are the cons? Take a lot of space to grow

Review:

This squash (and any moschata) are more resistant to vine borers, the plague of my squash patch, as their stems are not hollow and harder to bore through. They do best when I cover the vines at a few nodes with amended soil to promote rooting along the vines (helps with bugs and drought too) and spray a few times with baking soda water to discourage powdery mildew. Great squash for my family who doesn't care for squash. I use in bread, baked mac and cheese, soups, scalloped potatoes, waffles, and place of pumpkin in baking. A few hills generally gives me enough for us to eat until spring as well as some for a winter treat for our rabbits and poultry. Cans well in cubes, then mashes for an alternative to canned pumpkin when you don't have time to bake a whole squash. The years I haven't grown butternut I have always regretted it.

Review:

I harvested so many and did not have enough! Sweet and taty roasted, in soups and cut in chunks added to lentil curry. I miserly and reluctantly gifted a few to close friends lol! One of the best that tolerates our hot weather they did very well. I saved some for a few months too and it did not lose its flavour at all.BTW, I had to put state of Texas tho I am from Malaysia
