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.

What are the pros? beautiful, tasty

What are the cons? inconsistent

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.

Review:

This is a wonderful squash. It makes the best soup puree and pies as the flavor is rich, but light and delightful. Lots of water in the pumpkin as well. We decorate our home with the pumpkins in the fall and then eat them through the winter. As the squash begin to soften, if we have not eaten them all, we will simply chop the rest and put them in the freezer. Friends love them as gifts. A good producer.

Review:

I started these in the ground in mid- april. Wanted to enter in my county fair in August. I got at least a dozen large beauties from 2 plants alone. The were mature at end of june early july. I picked early so that they would have a chance to turn into that beautiful pink. They did and I won first place at the fair. No one in my area had ever seen these. Lots of fun to grow.
