(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? -

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.

What are the pros? Resists pests, tastes great

What are the cons? Huge Vines

Review:

This is the best butternut squash we've ever tasted. It's rich and flavorful and just delicious. I grew three vines, and they went everywhere, I'm sure i had several places that hit well over 50 feet, but it was worth it, I got 25 mature fruit off of 3 vines, averaging close to 6 pounds each. The vines grew in a ridiculously wet year, with really not as much heat as usual, and did beautifully. They laughed at the attempts of the squash bugs to bother them, just shrugged it off entirely. Will definitely be growing more of these from now on, if I get this many in the future i'm sure the local food bank will be thrilled!

Review:

Best squash we grow. Easy productive kept till April. Good size for a family meal. Super sweet with good flavor. Make great pies. On thing I saw is that when you pick it it is green and when stored for 2-4 weeks it turns tan. One last thing is give it lots of space as it will vine in 30 feet in all deretions.

Review:

Clearly the most flavouful squash we have ever grown, I tell our customers that it makes a butternut taste like a vegetable marrow in comparison. (My sincere apologies to the lovers of the relatively bland marrow) This squash is my 'go to' when I have anyone who wants a new squash to try. I know they will be so impressed with the taste of it, they will be back to try more. Give it plenty of room, water and food and it will outproduce almost everything else.

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.
