What are the pros? Everything

What are the cons? hard finding the seeds now

Review:

I have been growing Cream of the Crop squash for several years. Only problem is that it is now difficult to find seeds!! It is my favorite of all. Mine are round, with almost flat tops and bottoms, with shallow defining grooves going from top to bottom. I stab them lightly in several places, microwave for a on medium for 10 minutes or so, until they have some 'give', then take them out and slice them in half top to bottom. Scrape out the seeds and fill the centers with, any combination of: butter, cheese, brown sugar, or whatever you want. Put them on a baking pan or rimmed sheet, and bake at whatever temp you want or are using for another dish. They take a bit of time, (not so picky..just until soft),so plan ahead...pinch or poke until they are soft. Put on serving plates, and eat away. Heck, I even eat the skins like potato skins with a dab of butter and salt! Growing is easy, vines ramble about and the squash keep on growing and maturing for weeks. Keep well in frig.

What are the pros? Prolific!

What are the cons? too mild

Review:

Good if you like a very mild flavored squash. Great production (averaged about 6 per plant) storing well; however, I prefer a bolder/sweeter flavor.

What are the pros? New item not sure till i pick

What are the cons? None so far

Review:

Squash is 9 inches long rather than round. May round out as they mature. Planted from 3 inch pots in mid May. Nice yellow in color. Will wait till stem turns black as I do for my regular Acorn Squash. Just picked first Acorn Squash. Will buy Cream of Crop again.

What are the pros? mild flavour

What are the cons? Didn't plant enough

Review:

Planted this squash and hoped for the best. It did very well, even in the worst summer in Ireland in many many years. It was rained on, had cold weather and very little sun but still produced good numbers of squash outside.

What are the pros? Prolific, easy to grow

What are the cons? long vines, not compact

Review:

I planted this for the 2013 growing season. First time growing a winter squash, and I was pleasantly surprised! This squash was very easy to maintain, I got dozens of medium sized squash from 2 plants! I picked some young and they were very tasty as a sauted summer squash, and let others mature and harden outside and they stored well for at least 2 months. I am glad I saved seeds as they are out of stock on the website right now and I definitely am going to plant these again this year! Taste great as a winter squash, I pureed the mash and use it in my baked goods. Adds great moisture and texture and vitamins! New favorite that will always have a spot in my garden! Wasn't a compact plant by any means though, it had at least 10 foot vines. Worth the space in my opinion.
