Review:

Last year my Golden Egg squash was overrun with squash bugs. So was my crookneck. It was a daily battle which I ended up losing. After some research, I found this variety and planted them in a raised bed with an 8' trellis. They are already starting to bloom and it's only early June, and the vines are getting huge - one is already to the top of the trellis. Best of all - NOT ONE SQUASH BUG! I live in the country, so there are bugs everywhere. Not one found on this variety so far.

Review:

First time I grow this zucchini and I had a 100% germination rate. The plant is heat tolerant, produce hi yields and has a very good taste. Once pollinated the zucchini grow so fast it is almost unbelievable. This is a great variety of zucchini.

What are the pros? Summer or winter squash

What are the cons? Grows YUUUGE!!!!!

Review:

Such a garden spectacle. Spreads like wildfire so plan accordingly. I started growing up a trellis, then over the trellis and back to the ground. If you have the space I prefer the squash on the ground because they twist and turn for unique shapes, unlike linear shaped if they hang. Here's the thing, these babes grow fast- I learned to pick them small (5-9 inches long or less) for soft supple summer squash, any bigger they get mealy. I lost track of many in the garden and I just let them winter over. They become a deep orange in color and have the best squash flavor ever! I planted 2 seeds and I harvested hundreds of summer squash and I ended up with dozens of winter squash.

What are the pros? Flavor, Squash Bug Resistant

What are the cons? Nothing --

Review:

Squash bugs are a real problem in my community garden so growing zucchinis was almost impossible -- until I found these squash-bug-immune beauties. Plus their flavor is even better than young zucchinis. They also provide a constant supply of squash blossoms which make great soups and frittatas. The plants get absolutely huge -- I grow them on 9' tall bamboo teepees, but even so they need to be pruned occasionally to prevent them from taking over the whole garden.

Review:

I am amazed at this vegetable. Give it a trellis or trellis it as you would greenhouse tomatoes up a string and prune it. It produces so much and for such a long period. When you have just too much squash to eat let them mature and bulk up. When they are young they are the best zucchini. When mature- I have still have two in the basement now that I let mature and harden up in the sun with the rest of my winter squash, they are in pristine condition and it is Jan. 16th. Practical Advice- mix in lots of compost to ground before transplanting and top dress with compost just as they are starting to produce. Also don't transplant they too early as they are heirlooms and not modern hybrids, they will grow plenty fast and catch up to the other summer crops.
