Review:

Biggest squash I have ever grown, Trouble free, when your give them lots of water and feedings, Mark the base of the vine with a stake or you will lose track of where to water it, This vine has prolific leaves that are also huge, I spray Neem oil and hand pick to keep the bugs down. The squash has solid flesh inside, down to the bulbous base which is the seed cavity, not stringy, VERY tasty. mine kept for 5 months at room temperature, then got soft at the stem end, I cut it off and the rest was fine. This one has a space in our garden from here on!

Review:

I won FIRST place in my county fair for this one! It was beautiful and unusual. It grows later than other winter squash, but once it starts it just keeps making more. Does well even with squash bugs and SVB which I have a lot of here. Plant is one of the farthest reaching I have seen. Need space!

What are the pros? This took off like crazy,

What are the cons? seems to be slow now

Review:

Well its still very early for us with these. We have 23 out of the 25 seeds to germinate. I am in central alabama in very sandy loam soil in a ph 0f 7. The squash are planted on hills 4 to a hill and caged since deer like to see what is on the menu every night. The squash have been transplanted for a week and a half. they have endured fire ants and are beginning to get going...still slow at this point...dedicated 90 x 60 feet to these. will keep posted

What are the pros? Big, Attention Grabber

What are the cons? does poorly in drought

Review:

in 2012, i had one 20lb squash, did poorly near treeline in drought condition. In 2013 my heirloom and random squash were planted at the bottom of a hill on muck soil (high organic matter). I had several of these in excess of 50lbs, one made 90lbs. Several where broke by my field crew getting them in bins. Great attention grabber in my farm market. I sold several to local chefs who reported that it was stringy like pumpkins with a flavor not far from butternut.

Review:

I grew these on a trellis in Idaho. The vines were all over the place. The taste is ok, not the best but not bad either, could use a little brown sugar. I am in the process of canning my 3 ft long squashes. Today I canned a 23 pounder. I got 14 quart jars and pureed a quart bag for the freezer. Naples is a good canning squash, and it holds up well. I did not have ANY problem with the squash bug, mold or mildew.
