What are the pros? Sweet
What are the cons? few and far between
I am a winter squash fanatic! I try new varieties every year. This is by far the best winter squash we have ever tried. No exaggerating that it tastes more like a dessert. No need to put anything on it. Everyone that tried it, loved it. It's description on this site is highly underrated! This is a keeper.

What are the pros? Size

This squash was fun to grow, it made a lot of fruit and they were nice sized. I didn't like the taste or smell at first (reminded me of cucumber) but I then realized I was eating a immature squash. Will grow again and give it another chance! Also save your seeds from this as they grow nicely the next year and this is a RARE variety.

What are the pros? Easy to grow. Vigorous vines.
What are the cons? none.
This is the first time I've grown this squash. I'm amazed and happy. I'm in zone 8b. I planted 2 plants in a hill of well amended soil. No chemicals or pesticides. Natural. Once this thing took off it was Katie bar the door. It's huge. Planted on May 1st, I've harvested about 12 squash and there are more coming, this is Aug 29th. The squash are from 10 to 19 lbs. I have never eaten a squash of any variety that I've liked better. A little butter and brown sugar to taste and you're off to the races. It reminds me of somewhere between applesauce and apricots. It's good enough that it could be a dessert item. To say I'm impressed would be an understatement. The truly good thing is that I can keep them for a few months. I'm eating high on the hog this fall.

I grew this in a cool wet year in Central PA. I planted 2 hills in less than ideal conditions and harvested 14 squash with the largest around 14lbs. I've baked 2 of them and they have a great flavor. I've eaten the flesh plain and made "pumpkin" pie with some too. The vines are long and they like to climb but the neighbors all enjoyed watching the squash grow.
