(C. moschata) 100 days A famous, old, traditional variety from the heart of France. It has a sweet, musky fragrance and a delicious, sweet flesh that is used in jams, soups, and many French recipes. Small 3-5 lb. fruit are perfect for roasting and have deep orange flesh. Oblong, bell-shaped fruit are tannish-orange in color. We are happy to introduce this flavorful variety to America.

What are the pros? Size of the mature fruit.

What are the cons? Stringy flesh like acorn w-s

Review:

2014, first year growing this variety, also saw me growing Choctaw Sweet Potato Winter Squash as well as Upper-Ground Sweet Potato W-S. The Sucrine yielded 12 Butternut-squash-looking fruit from two plants, all in the 3-5-pound range. All stored well and I began to dine on them in February 2015. The flesh was a glorious slightly red-ish orange from the oven-baked fruit; sadly, though, the flesh was quite stringy and quite inferior to succulent, smooth flesh that Butternut and Choctaw Sweet Potato produce. For this year's garden, I'd consider Sucrine only because of its convenient size. But, because Choctaw has always done quite well for me, I'll likely go with Choctaw only. Other reviewers have reported Sucrine's smooth, non-stringy flesh. I would suggest that genetic variation among the seed, different cultural practices, and varied local growing conditions may account for our different experiences. I'd like to hear more from others on this.

What are the pros? tasty not stringy keeps v.well

What are the cons? none, will grow again

Review:

Have grown this two years and will continue to grow. Did well in container, got to at least 10 lb. Great keeper. Seems to like being grown vertically, hanging fruit need support and become large and perfectly shaped.

What are the pros? Great keeper, good flavor

What are the cons? low yield

Review:

This squash was a hit at the farmers market, lots of complements on the sweetness and flavor. It is important to allow it to cure completely before cooking in order to get the best flavor and texture. We had it in the greenhouse for two weeks before selling it. Will be buying more seeds to grow more this season.

What are the pros? wonderful tasting

What are the cons? not as prolific as I would lik

Review:

My Sucrine turned out very dense & fine grained not stringy at all. It has the most beautiful vibrant red/orange color & when I roasted it came out very sweet & not watery; everyone thought i had already added sugar when i had just roasted it!. I made a great squash pie for thanksgiving & squash coconut ice cream that came out delicious! I will grow as much of this squash I can next year!

Review:

These grew the most massive squash I ever grown! I got a few weighing over 12 pounds!!! They had to be picked and ripened indoors due to short growing season here in the north. Fun way to help feed the entire family!!!
