What are the pros? Reading about it

What are the cons? Powder Mildew

Review:

Last year was first trail but Pumpkin Beetles and Powdery Mildew were horrible. The plants died very early and the crop was poor. After reading the review could not wait to taste. We planted it in same row with Black Fitsu. We got 6-1# from 3 plants. Very little fruit left after cooking. Found the Fitsu to taste much better. Perhaps someone could suggest how to cook it better. We tried it with honey and butter. Saved some seed.

What are the pros? Can be trellised.

What are the cons? None.

Review:

Very good tasting compact fruits. I don't have a lot of space for sprawling squash plants so I trellised these up the side of the house and they grew great and were also very pretty to look at hanging on the vines!

What are the pros? so tasty

What are the cons? squash bugs love them

Review:

These are absolutely the best little squashes. Good productivity and though the squash bugs really like them, the fruit seems pretty resilient and resistant to real damage. We find these much sweeter and more productive than the Honey Boat Delicata, which are always just "meh" in comparison. Although the Honey Boats have a prettier, tan and green rind. But we don't grow those anymore because these really outshine them in every other aspect.

Review:

Planted 2 seeds, super late in the year (Sometime in mid/late July, in a shady spot. I figured they would do nothing. To my surprise I got one fruit off of each vine before the powdery mildew from my other squash overtook them. They were the BEST squash I have ever tasted.

What are the pros? Prolific and tasty

Review:

This was my first time growing this squash and I wasn't even sure when they were ripe. But I had so many, and they looked like the pictures in the catalog, so even though it was only mid July, I picked a couple, sliced them in half, scoped out the seeds, wrapped them in foil and baked them. I put nothing on them so we could taste their true flavor, and they were terrific. We've since elated about 30 more and I've found my favorite way is to slice them in half moon shapes about an inch thick, put them on a clay baking sheet with a little olive oil and salt and caramelize them, skins and all. If you think you won't like them with the skins, try it anyway - I'll bet you'll change your mind. And lastly we have a huge problem with squash bugs. They decimated our pumpkins and even attacked our Greek red squash, but I never found a bug or egg cluster on the delicatas. Maybe the pumpkins just lured them all away, but they've done the best out of all our squash this year.
