(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? Flavor is sweetest.

What are the cons? long season

Review:

Greek sweet Red is the best tasting winter squash I have ever had. Amazing sweet and buttery flesh. They take a long time to fully mature and need to turn completely orange to taste sweet. If they are pick with still a little green on them they will just be ok. They do turn a beautiful dusty orange color when fully ripe.

What are the pros? Most delicious squash EVER!

What are the cons? long season to ripen

Review:

I planted a lot of these squash this year because they are so good. Once they started to set fruit they were abundant. Unbelievable flavor, extremely sweet. No need to add any seasoning, flavoring or salt to these squash. I eat them plain after roasting and they taste like candy. Unsurpassed and out of his world! Resistant to powdery mildew which I have a huge problem with in my garden. Other squash will die from powdery mildew but not these. Even if two different varieties are planted in the same hill, the other one will die but these will thrive. These squash will always have a place (large one!) in my garden

What are the pros? Squash bugs don't bother them!

What are the cons? none

Review:

I've been growing these for several years now, and they are my favorite winter squash ever! First, the squash bugs, which are my mortal enemies here in Arkansas, have never bothered them. They grow huge vines, 30 feet or more! The flavor is rich and sweet, very pumpkiny. I get some smaller, early fruits that are perfect for stuffing, and the bigger ones that mature in the fall are wonderful for canning. They will continue to ripen off the vine. I still have some stored from the 2014 season!!! All in all, the BEST winter squash I have ever grown!!

What are the pros? Flavor and Fine Grained

What are the cons? None

Review:

Hands down my favorite squash. The flavor is suberb-sweet and flesh is not stringy. So sweet I don't even need honey on it. It takes a long season. When I picked the squash they were still green but began to turn their slight yellow orange in as they were stored in my garage. I have grown 10 different kinds of squash and these are ones I will for sure grow again and again. Do well without much car or attention. Vines are long, but most squash that are not bush--that is the case.

What are the pros? Very prolific. Unusual squash.

What are the cons? Super long vines

Review:

I grew these for the first time in 2015. I planted 8 seeds and all of them germinated. I thinned them to 3 plants and the vines were slow to spread out but when they did, they went crazy. Several vines crawled more than 10 feet into the grumpy neighbour's yard behind our place and he tore off 4 squash and threw them back into our yard along with the invading vines. Still, we ended up harvesting 32 squash, each between 5 and about 10 pounds. They are extremely sweet but they don't seem to store as well as other varieties like Hubbard and Red Warty Thing. The rot started on many of them within a week or so of harvesting in late October, always at the blossom button at the bottom of the fruit. But these are an interesting and very tasty addition to my squash varieties.
