(C. moschata) 100 days. An Italian Butternut-type squash, these have a violin shape and wrinkled tan skin. The flesh is deep orange and sweet, perfect for desserts, roasting, stuffing and baking. WONDERFUL!

What are the pros? DELICIOUS

Review:

My husband and I have been gardening for years, and at our current farm in Michigan's Thumb for the past 7 years, each year narrowing down our favorite varieties of the veggies and fruits we grow. We are both big fans of butternut squash, but both agree this variety - which we grew for the first time this year - is hands down, no contest, THE BEST SQUASH ever! I planted our seeds very late this year, but even so the vines persevered and we got a fair amount squash off of plants that never looked anything but robust until the first hard frost hit. Despite being considerably bigger than your average butternut, their seed cavity is relatively small, meaning you get a lot of the wonderfully delicious, deep orange flesh out of each one. So far we have enjoyed them roasted in the oven with only a small pat of butter and no other seasoning, and have made soup out of them that was dubbed, "the BEST squash soup ever" WILL DEFINITELY GROW AGAIN!

What are the pros? sprouted and grew

What are the cons? all fruit died (disease?)

Review:

With so many rave reviews, I decided to try this squash. Folks seemed to like it better than Waltham (my butternut mainstay, in part since I live in the city it was named after). Anyway, I grew a couple of these on a trellis (to keep them off the ground and less prone to problems); they seemed to be doing fine. But then the fruits started to rot away and shrivel up (maybe from a disease?). In the end, all the squash from this variety were doomed; I got zero squash off these plants. Meanwhile, one of my good ol' Waltham squash seeds grew out of my compost pile. I got 4 squash off that volunteer plant (and it was growing along the ground rather than being pampered like this variety). I was mightily disappointed in the Rogosa Violina, since I've never had a problem with *any* type of squash in the past. I'll try it again next year, but I will grow some Waltham butternuts too, just in case.

Amazing squash
Easy to Grow 4.5

What are the pros? Impressive size, easy to grow,

What are the cons? Few fruits

Review:

I was unfamiliar with this variety, so I only planted one hill. I got three mature fruits, and they were so big, so gorgeous and so delicious - I can't wait to plant more next year. The largest of the fruits was the size of my thigh (which I know you can't see, but believe me, it is a robust size). I had to use three baking sheets to roast that one fruit! Once it was roasted and pureed, it had a lovely silky texture and sweet pumpkin flavor. I think the flavor is similar to other butternut varieties, but the texture is very refined. This is the type of squash that would win prizes and admiration at the state fair.

Review:

This plant only produce 2 squash. one big and one small. The flavor was very very good. Not too much seeds. I trellis it because we have heavy rains and the land get a little swampy. I gonna plant it again for sure since it was so delicious.

Review:

Where to begin? I have nothing but good things to say about this amazing squash. I have one that has kept in the kitchen for more than a year now - excellent storage life. And the flavor is superb. The best squash I have ever eaten. Much better than waltham butternut. This will be a staple in my garden for my lifetime. THE BEST squash on the market!
