(C. pepo) 85 days An heirloom from the Gill Brothers Seed Company of Oregon. This is probably the best tasting of all acorns; the bright yellow, small acorn-shaped fruit have a sweet flesh that's very flavorful! Uniquely colored fruit are great for fall decorations.

Love this squash

What are the pros? Compact, delicious

What are the cons? Slugs love them too

Review:

I have a very small yard so I was excited to find a compact winter squash to try. This squash plant worked very well in my square foot garden and produced lots of squash! Unfortunately the slugs were also a big fan so I lost a lot of squash to them before I realized what was going on. Next year I'll have to do a better job at slug patrol when growing these.

A Favorite Year After Year

What are the pros? Delicious and prolific!

What are the cons? None!

Review:

I plant these little acorns year after year. The ordinary acorn pales in comparison to the taste of these guys. They were a favorite of my produce customers. Some just got them for something different to decorate with. But those who tasted them came back for more! I absolutely love the taste! I add a touch of butter, cinnamon and a spritz of sugar, which isn't necessary, and they are to die for. Mine produced heavily even in the wet cool ND summer we had. I will plant even more hills this year. They keep well, and are just the right size for 1 or 2 servings. One of my all time favorites and a staple in my garden and at my produce stand.

What are the pros? Gorgeous small fruits .

What are the cons? Low yield .

Review:

The golden acorns are tiny , but sweet flesh , and with a nutty flavor . You only get 3 or so fruit on a compact vine . Probably this variety is best treated as an ornamental , which you can also eat . Very pretty mini pumpkins , mix with green acorns for contrast , in a cane basket for indoor decoration .

What are the pros? rich, sweet, productive

What are the cons? none yet

Review:

These really are the richest, definitely sweetest acorns, really any squash I've tried yet! I planted and grew these in a greenhouse since I rarely trust cukes (melons, squash, etc) out in our cool summers, and planted them rather late. Despite that, they still took off and produced plenty gorgeous golden-orange acorns with some mind-blowing flavor that we enjoyed the following Christmas instead of having Sweet Potatoes (sweeter anyway) They were quick to mature, not super quick, but certainly fast enough before the fall freeze.

What are the cons?

Review:

These squash tend to be about half the size of a standard acorn, but with more flavor and sweetness. They are rather prolific and do vine well. The "meh" is because their flesh is not very thick, so for most of them two squash would equal one serving for me. But they store well so far and have made great table decorations while waiting to get eaten so....Better than average for color, visual appeal and productivity, very good taste but just okay because they are too sparse of flesh to do much with. Would probably be great for little soup turrines.
