(C. moschata) 95 days Here is one delicious squash; the long-necked, reddish-tan fruit are filled with sweet, deep orange flesh that's richly flavored. This was the most popular squash here at Baker Creek in 2004! Attractive, large vines are highly productive. It is very resistant to squash beetles, too! This variety is super-rare, and I believe we are the only source.

What are the pros? Very Hardy

What are the cons? None, It is a a winter squash,

Review:

This is an excellent winter squash. I have grown it in wet or dry years and the results have always been good. It makes excellent puree baby food, cake, yeast rolls and pie. It is resistant to the scourge of my garden- squash bugs and Japanese beetles. Produce in good soil or marginal. If you grow it, you will be successful.

What are the pros? flavor, productivity

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew my squash in a partially-shaded part of the garden this year, so my expectations were low. But I got a number of fully butternut-sized squash from these plants. I tend to have trouble growing butternuts, but these matured more reliably, and I think they taste better too. I like a fine-grained, relatively dry, flavorful squash, so by my standards these are great. Made excellent soup - hope to use the next one for pie and/or curry. They're also very pretty. A couple were harvested when they were the dusty tan in the one picture; they others were mottled green&tan when harvested and have been turning more tan in storage - I'm guessing they will be less sweet.

What are the pros? Bug and Disease Resistant

What are the cons? None

Review:

The plants were a little slow to get started, but once they did (late July after late May planting) they took right off. I have real bug issues, and tried these as well as a C. Mixta type to test how well they'd do with no special care. Results: Fair yield, excellent bug and disease resistance, and really, really, REALLY excellent flavor. The only evidence of bug damage at all was a little bit of blemishing on the skin (from squash bugs), but this was purely cosmetic and did NOT affect keeping quality/cause rot or anything like that. Cucumber beetles mostly ignored them, vine borers seemed not to be able to successfully attack them (and I saw several moths lay eggs on the vines, which I left for trial purposes.) This is going to be my go-to butternut type from here on out - if you like roasting/carmelized butternut, THIS IS THE ONE TO GROW.

What are the pros? Bug Resistance

What are the cons? very late

Review:

I have decided this is the zone 5b winter squash for me. It has been very resistant to bug damage, and even though a very late squash, and not beautiful to look at, it stores very well (over a year for me) and is great in pumpkin pie and any other recipe requiring pumpkin. It also holds up well to pressure canning (an experiment for me). I will be growing this as my only winter squash until someone convinces me there is a better variety to try.

What are the pros? -

What are the cons? disappointing yield and taste

Review:

Last summer I planted a row of this squash. It started growing, and grew, and grew. By the time our other winter squash were setting and hardening off, this one was still growing. Finally, blossoms appeared. Two squash from a whole row. Disappointing! To make things worse, the flavor wasn't that good either. Overall, this one isn't a keeper.
