What are the pros? Grows easily.

What are the cons? Don't know of any yet

Review:

This came up as a volunteer. We thought it was butternut squash, but as the season progresses (now end of July) it's obvious it's something else--apparently green striped cushaw. Any relationship? Chose 3 for overall rating, since we're unfamiliar with it and it hasn't matured yet. Also, don't know yet about early maturity. Plant appeared at the end of May and now is bearing several squash which are not yet ready for harvesting. Will see as season continues.

Review:

The flesh is sweet and smooth. This squash made the best pumpkin pie filling I have ever eaten! It tolerated our hot dry summer very well. It was resistant to many of the pests that were chomping away at other squash..this will grow in my garden every year from now on!

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Many large fruit

What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew

Review:

Bought package of seeds on a whim for 50 cents and was rewarded with a garden full of large fruits. Seeds were planted the third week of May in full sun. Plants were easy to grow and did not require weeding after the leaves were fully developed. Plants grew very vigorously setting numerous fruits. Give these Cushaws plenty of room where vines can roam. Due to wet growing this season in SE Michigan the leaves/vines started to die off in mid-August due to powdery mildew. However by this time most of the fruits were mature. Since it's still too hot to store these fruits in the root cellar they will be processesd and frozen for later use. Easy plants with good results for children to grow providing your garden has the room.

Review:

Growing up I thought that all Pumpkin pies were made from Cushaws. That was the only Squash my Mother ever used so it made since to me that everyone else did as well.When cooked, Cushaws have a good texture and phenomenal flavor so naturally they make a Pumpkin pie that is better than Pumpkin pies made from most Pumpkins. The trick is to only use the neck of the Cushaw and discard the bowl.They grow well and produce admirably here in Southern Indiana and they will take whatever space you allow .
