(C. maxima) 115 days Here’s a gorgeous and superbly flavorsome little squash from Spain! The name, translated from Spanish, means “good-taste-of-the-oven,” and these elegant little squashes are certainly that! The slightly flattened, ribbed and warted fruit reach to about 12 inches across and weigh in at around 7 to 15 pounds. Colors run from deep green to pale sage, and the rinds are occasionally splashed in orange--outstanding in displays! The dense, firm, medium yellow-orange flesh is sweet and fine-grained, and definitely excellent for baking. Add excellent keeping quality, and you’ve got a real winner that everyone is sure to love!

What are the pros? Great taste, Large size, Fast

What are the cons? Low yield, SVB

Review:

Grew Buen Gusto de Horno as a curiosity just to see how it would do in this area. Of 6 plants I only got 3 squash due to SVB. After more research it would appear these are low yielding plants even without pest interference, but the large size of the squash makes up for it (12 to 20lbs). The 3 squash grew quickly to a large size despite heavy damage from the pests and a couple freak hail storms. Very large plants, vines grew to 20ft. So far I've used the squash in 3 Sister Soup. The taste has more of a savory flavor than Butternut and is also firmer when cooked, holding it's shape well. Would be great roasted by itself. I plan on trying this variety next season due to the taste and large size and will take more care to prevent SVB infestation. Overall this variety is easy to grow in spite of the aforementioned and I would recommend it for any squash lover who lives in an area less prone to SVB and who has lots of room for vines.

What are the pros? Taste

What are the cons? Not prolific enough

Review:

I have grown all the squash you could name and this has got by far the best taste. I had a friend over for dinner the night I served some and she stole the other half of it out of my fridge and said from now on she only wants me to grow that one squash and no others. It was beyond good. I do tend to produce very sweet vegies with my river loam, but it wasn't just sweet. The texture was very fine and yummy. My only complaint is it wasn't prolific enough. I only grew two plants and they both produced two or three squash. I'm just hoping they produce more this year.
