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 .

Review:

My parents had grown this one year in Tennessee so I knew what it could do. The crop grew, produced, and was finished in 5 months' time. In between, we got 24 pumpkins from 5 plants, one of which was on the edge of the garden and so really didn't count. We didn't get the size pumpkins that some others did, as our biggest was about 12 pounds, but it didn't matter since we got so many. We had enough to freeze some, make plenty of pies, and give some away. The best part is that, true to advertisement, they resist most bugs, and SVBs pretty much ignore them. Make sure you allow enough room for these plants; if you plant them 8 feet apart they'll start running into each other but will be ok.

Review:

This cushaw variety is definitly worth growing!It is more productive than the orange and white striped variety and has better appearance than the white variety. A half dozen good vines can easily produce more fruit than the average family will use. Its vines are vigorous and can withstand a variety of soil moisture levels, high temperatures, and humidity. Cushawsare great for breads, cakes, and other desserts. Shelf life is probably better than average but not as long as harder shell pumpkin/squash varieties such as Hubbards,Victor,or Jarrahdale.
