Review:

Update to my review above....it's been cooling down a great deal, even dropping down to the low 40's at night here in central NC and these buttercup squash have been producing so many more squash! These plants have been in since summer and are just going and going. They appear to like the cooler temps much better. The plant looks very healthy. These are for sure a win! I'll be planting again!!

I forgot to add that this squash was not bothered at all by anything. No bugs or critters, which includes my veggie-patch-raiding mutt.

What are the cons? None

Review:

This was an abysmal year for my veggie patch, from cold soil (even with black mulch), to excess nitrogen in my soil, to greedy raccoons, but these babies thrived! I did absolutely nothing for them after I planted them, and they went crazy. No watering or anything. I got 13 squash from one plant. Two are about 8'lbs., the rest in the 2-3 lb. range. As far as flavor and texture, they are dry and fluffy, like a good Russet potato, with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. I think the minimal water contributed to the richness of flavor. These will be a mainstay in my garden!

What are the pros? Pest resistant

What are the cons? Wish they were a tad bigger

Review:

They are delicious. They taste like a cross between a sweet potato and a pumpkin. The plants really do well with no help. Pest resistant and really required very little attention. Descent production amount and not a huge plant so this is a win for the backyard gardener! Don't wait to harvest to long as they will get a bit dry inside. I just sliced them, scooped them, sprinkled a little salt, butter, and roasted in the oven. Very simple and very delicious. Layers of flavor. They are small so you may want to plant a few as I can sit and eat one whole squash myself. If you are adding it to a dish then great but if it is the main dish then you want to account for one squash for every one to two adults. That being said, with how yummy and easy they are, you may want to plant a bunch! :) I grew these late summer early fall in central NC and they apparently really like this weather.

Review:

This squash is moderately sweet but I could detect no nutty undertones to it's flavor. Mine was turning golden brown on one half of it, so it was definitely ripe. This squash is flavorful and tastes very rich and "squashy". One 3 lb. squash will easily feed 2 squash-loving people. :-) (seeds are tough for eating, even when fried, IMHO). The flesh is dense, heavy, moist (consistency of a sweet potato) and tastes wonderful with only butter on it as a vegetable side dish. It is not fibrous at all and the flesh is easily scooped out of the cooked shell. It mashes up "creamy" too, so it would be easy to use for pies and puddings without having to go through the extra step to blend or puree the pulp first. With this squash, all you have to do is mash it with a hand-masher. I found that baking this squash produces a richer, "squashier" flavor. (350 degrees/1 1/2 hrs). If you want more of a nutty flavor, grow Blue Hubbard or Black Futsu instead.
