What are the pros? flavor of Delicata

What are the cons? powdery mildew

Review:

I had good germination and nice vine growth. But then I got hit with powdery mildew, and I was just never able to recover. This is the first year I've ever had powdery mildew, and it hit all three of my Baker squash/melon varieties. I didn't harvest a single squash. But, I love Delicata squash, so I'm going to give it another try this year. I've already identified my organic PM eradication method, so I will be keeping a close eye on the plants and am hoping for a good harvest this year.

Review:

This is to "farmer" who was looking for other ways to cook this squash...I often just cut these in half, remove the seeds, put it back together and bake at 350 until it can be easily pierced with a fork. I never sweeten it, I just serve with butter and let everyone season to taste with salt and pepper. I have also stuffed this squash with a sausage, apple and cornbread stuffing, heavy on the sausage and served it as a main dish with a winter type salad. I also use that stuffing for small butternut squash.

What are the pros? Abundent fruit

What are the cons? Huge trailing stems

Review:

Smooth tasty flesh in a not too big squash. Loved growing it outside and in the greenhouse. It did very well in the worst summer, very wet and cold, that Ireland has had in many years. Will be adding this to my "always grow" list.

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!
