What are the pros? grow fast

What are the cons? Squash Bugs love'em

Review:

Nice big plants but they are dying off fast. They seem have to little resistance to our local squash bugs here in N Utah. All our other cucuribits are so far ok and historically we have minimal squash plants die due to squash bugs.

Review:

This squash... If you want a very unique pumpkin that both spooks and delights all who see it and is also delicious, this is the one! Germination was 100% and the plants were very healthy and gave me tons of pumpkins, all different from each other, even though I neglected them a bunch! Let your pumpkins mature so they develop the warts and bumps! Very cool! The bugs do try to drill holes through the bottom, so rotate the squash sometimes until it's ripe, or place it in a bowl or something that lifts it off the dirt until ready for harvest. Made pumpkin pie with this, and it turned out fantastic! Made pumpkin curry and also have put it in a soup. I have several I need to process, but they're still holding on. Planted them in early spring and they were ready in August, so they've been sitting around (outside and inside) and holding up very well. Only a few rotted, because of the bugs drilling holes in their bottoms. Try this one!!!

What are the pros? Beautiful Taste

What are the cons? straggly growth

Review:

First time for me this summer with this variety in Brittany.The mice got 5 of the seeds I sowed so only one came through and only produced one fruit. A beautiful salmon pink colour with some small warts which were rather appealing. Crisp skin when cut and an amazing flavour when raw a cross between carrots and apples. Brilliant grated into a slaw and stupendous soup. This is definitely my favourite squash now. Less productive than some others, for example butternut, and takes up a bit of space so will experiment growing upwards this year. Grew some good sized Blue Hubbards up amongst my Runners this year got to be the way to go for medium sized squashes in the future!!

29 pounds! The first one was over 24 pounds, and there's another out there that may weigh more. Best pumpkin pie ever, great soup.

Review:

I've grown a few varieties of squash, and these are the earliest. The vines are hardy and produce 1-2 fruit per for me. They aren't as rampant as other varieties. The fruit are beautiful, but inconsistent. Some squash stay small, others don't get warty, but I always get more than I can use from a row. The best of them fit the description above and make a great fall display. But so what. They're my favorite because of the sweet taste that's reminiscent of melon. It's in a different class. The tastiest squash I've come across. They make amazing soup, for sure.
