What are the pros? Great in all areas
What are the cons? Germination could be better
Three years in a row the Oregon Sweet Meat squash is the best of all the varieties grown alongside it (Blue Hokkaido, Boston Marrow, Red Kuri, Georgia Candy Roaster and Baby Blue Hubbard). First a tip for germination: I have noticed that each year the seeds tend to germinate much later than the others, be patient with this variety and you will be rewarded with a most vigorous and healthy squash vine. It is by far the largest vine with the most flowers and can take the heat on a hot day. Most rewarding however are the squash themselves which taste like a sweet potato. We enjoy them baked, made into ravioli filling or in soup. The flavor improves with a few months of proper storage. Expect about four to five squash per vine and give it plenty of room! Dont be deterred by the sluggish germination and give this truly excellent variety a try.
