Review:

I have HUGE problems with Squash Vine Borer, Squash Bugs, and Cucumber Beetles, as well as mildew. These Cushaws received no special treatment, as a test - I just planted them in my prepared area and watered them. Result: Off the three vines I got 4 fruits, all right about 25# each. They are a handsome squash, and very decorative while being stored. They were covered in squash bugs, which seemed to not be able to harm them. Vine borers laid a few eggs on them, but at harvest time I saw only a couple larva actually in the vines, which were not damaged in the slightest. Cucumber beetles seemed to pretty much ignore them, and the plants never got mildew. They *did* take a little while to get going, but once they did (late July after a late May planting) they were off to the races. They taste great - best for pies, but usable for any purpose. I will DEFINITELY be growing these every year now. Give them a try!

Review:

This squash was so beautiful. The skin is smooth and so white it almost glows--no where near as blemished as it appears in the picture on the website. Some have faint green stripes. They are also very large, 10-20 lbs. They were definitely bug resistant-nothing touched them. I neglected them--didn't even water them--and grew near an oak tree where almost nothing does well for me. They took a long while to get going and I thought I would not end up with any here in Michigan, but I was wrong, and got 3 very nice ones from 2 vines. The taste was bland and the flesh was very pale and unappetizing in appearance. The seeds were delicious and so easy to collect and clean--not sloppy and attached to strings like a Jack O Lantern's seeds.

Review:

First year growing this gem. So far have harvested over 120lbs. One was so heavy I needed a wheel barrel. Looking forward to many pies!!! I've already used the puree in waffles and pancakes. I'll grow this again and again. Thank you. Thank you.
