65 days. A must in Mexican cuisine, and also popular in certain parts of Texas. This old heirloom is picked small and used like zucchini, but these are so much better than standard supermarket zucchini! Round to slightly elongated, flavorful fruit are green in color; vigorous vining plants are fairly resistant to disease.

What are the cons? Needs to be trellised, Mildew

Review:

This is a fantastic squash!! This is the only squash that kept producing despite the long hot summer in Texas! As long as we live in Texas, we will grow this squash! It tastes so much better than any summer squash, much more complex. It had really long vines that should be trellised. Give this squash afternoon shade and it will love you forever! It did get powdery mildew in the fall, but it had an excellent run before it was infected.

Review:

This is a perfect squash variety. I grew a few different varieties, and it was by far my favorite. It can be grown as a summer squash and harvested young, or as a winter squash. I got a late start on my squash planting this year, so I grew it for winter storage. I started it in August and it produced at least 5 good sized, beautiful dark green squash. They had the best flavor - a little nutty, a little sweet, like a really good cucumber mixed with a very ripe honeydew melon. I baked it with a little sesame oil, stuffed with apples, and it could not have been more delicious. The flesh was similar to spaghetti squash when mature, had an excellent texture and was very juicy. This will become a winter staple for me. It required almost no care once it got going. When my zucchini and pumpkins were all falling prey to the mildew (such a wet year), these guys were lush, green, and rambling all over my back yard. They didn't need much watering even in the dryer part of the year. A

Review:

Just an update on my growing season. I had everything going wrong and this squash still pumped out massive amounts. We had drought, high heat (including a week or two of 115 degree weather, a squash bug infestation, and an aphid attack, but nothing could keep this from producing. I had weeks that I would harvest about 20 or more squash. I ate it, gave it away, blanched and froze shredded, and dehydrated. I have plenty of dehydrated to add to soups and what ever else I can dream up. Over all I ate them nearly every day of the summer with only 4 plants, and preserved upwards of 75 of them.

What are the pros? tasty and easy

What are the cons? none at this time

Review:

Huge producer. Vines will take over your garden and then your yard and then your driveway (I planted when I was new to this area and had nothing else take off so let this one go). I'm harvesting 3-4 a day. Squash in EVERYTHING. Sweet taste. Pick young when the skin is still light green and size is about softball or a little larger.

What are the pros? Fast growth, good squash

What are the cons? Thorns

Review:

I'm in zone 9 and I direct seeded on the 10th of April. Yesterday I harvested my first squash and I can't wait for more! I removed from the vines around the size of a softball. While the seeds were well developed at this size the whole thing is very tasty. I cooked it without oil or seasoning to get the true flavor and my goodness was it good. I can't wait to have more and it's a good thing because there are around 10 that will be ripe in the next week or 2 with more showing up every day. I do have 4 plants so that boosts production. This vining squash will be a favorite I imagine. Currently the vines are at least 5 feet in length and I have it growing on cattle panel. Do be careful if the thorns on this thing, but it's worth having to wear gloves for.
