What are the pros? Great taste, Large size, Fast
What are the cons? Low yield, SVB
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.
