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.

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.

Review:

Don't worry about space as this is the perfect vertical plant. We used old baby crib sides (from a thrift store)for climbing and the squash loved it. Best part, the superb fruit is so easy to pick, no bending over! We set out five plants and have over 30 squash now ripening. Don't just bake them, be creative: breads, pancakes, pies.....the texture is so light and delicious; my personal favorite. Voted "Best likely to be planted next year." Winter storage will NOT be an issue.

Review:

Just a quick thought to share after seeing many comments regarding storing delicata... Delicata is not really meant to be stored, since it is so thin-skinned, in spite of being a "winter squash". That being said, it is now January and I still have delicatas I bought from the local farmers market early November doing just fine in a cold room in my house. In addition, do not feel you need to peel it when eating it (I've seen many recipes where folks say to peel it as if it's necessary). Like the person said about nuking it like a potato, you can choose to eat the skin if you'd like. I absolutely love this squash and am so glad someone recommended it to me!!

Review:

This is the only squash I will willingly eat as itself. Love it. This was my first year trying to grow it, and so far I've only gotten one (beautiful, perfect!) squash-- however, I blame my lack of experience and attention for that, not the seed or the very vigorous vine. I wasn't sure it was an heirloom (I saved my seeds from a store-bought squash), so I've overjoyed to see that it should continue to breed true, and will def. add to my supply through bakercreek. YAY!
