55-60 days. Forget the new "Eight Ball" hybrid. There already was an heirloom version. These are a rich, dark green color, round-shaped and very flavorful; perfect for home or markets. Vigorous plants produce well. Italian seed.

What are the pros? Very tasty, decent producer

What are the cons? Borers, poor germination

Review:

Loved these little guys. A little physics: A sphere has the highest volume:surface area ratio. One little squash actually has a lot to it, and can easily fill a pan! The flavor is exquisite, and these were easily our favorite squash in the garden this year. Some downsides. The borers also like them, though that's not really a surprise. I had really poor germination as well. 100% with all my other squash varieties, but less than 50% (probably ~30%) for this one. They're also rather average producers for the size of the plants, but not poor by any stretch. Don't be turned off by the negative aspects though...they are well worth it.

What are the pros? Disease resistant. Makes A LOT

What are the cons? Haven't found any yet

Review:

I have tried to grow squash many times in my garden. Usually the plants are dead by early August due to pests and I get 3 or 4 squash per plant . I seeded the plants outside early May. This plant started producing mid July and hasn't stopped since. I must have gotten 20 squash from one plant and so far it has showed no signs of stopping. I do make sure they have a little water every day and they have shown very little sign of stress during our hot summer. My wife would rather have "yellow" squash... but I like this one just as much... AND I enjoy growing it quite a bit better.

Review:

Very vigorous and prolific, pest and trouble-free. Squash are delicious, smooth texture, tender rind, lovely white flesh still white when baked, & low seed even when picked a little later than intended. Will definitely grow again.
