What are the pros? Don't have to peel

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This is my favorite squash. We grow it every year. The small size makes it perfect for one or two people and the peel is so delicate that we just leave it on. We slice it up, toss with olive or coconut oil, sprinkle with seasoning salt, and bake.

Review:

These are great and easy to grow, at least they are here, one hour west of Toronto. I started them in peat pots and compost, and also took some to my daughter's farm north-west of Ottawa, where they did wel ltoo, bearing and ripening lots of fruit, even at 45 degrees north. In the fall I picked the under-ripe ones and cooked them like summer squash. The ripe ones are easy to cook, just halve them, scoop out the seeds, place the halves, cut side down in a shallow pyrex dish with a quarter inch of water and microwave them for 10 or 12 minutes. The skin is indeed quite tender if you try it.

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.
