What are the pros? Delicious, Easy, Productive

What are the cons? none

Review:

I grew a lot of squash varieties this summer. I have learned to have both early and late season varieties in c pepo, c maxima and c moschata. Some were much more productive than others. This one has been my favorite. They grew earliest of the varieties that I had, and I ate a lot of them at least compared to my others. I rinsed them and microwaved them. Then I ate every one of them just like that. I will grow them for the flavor alone, and I will grow them as an early variety also. I will also grow them for their perfect size. The size was also right for me to eat and be done with it. It became the center of my meals, but that was also ok. The skin is tougher than a zucchini or summer squash, but it doesn't matter. Inside it is yellow orange, not as orange as store bought carrots. Next year mine will be hybridized with another squash. I like hybridizing as a hobby. I don't know if they store well or not because they were so good, there was no need for storage.I at then as fast as I saw

Even with our unusual weather this year, these were stellar! Hardy, vigorous vines that set lots of fruit. Will grow again and again. Highly recommend.

What are the pros? Easy care

What are the cons? Lower germination rate

Review:

This is my first year growing these plants. They are doing very well. I planted them late in the season and only had a 50% germination rate. I have had no pest issues. The lower germination rate was not an issue as I just replanted. My plants now have taken over their corner of the yard. They are producing a lot of flowers and are setting a lot of beautiful fruit. The only care I have given them was regular water. I planted them in raised bed in full sun. These plants are liking their location so much that they have started encroaching on other beds even two beds over. I will be planting these again.

What are the pros? Don't have to peel

What are the cons? Nothing

Review:

This is my favorite squash. We grow it every year. The small size makes it perfect for one or two people and the peel is so delicate that we just leave it on. We slice it up, toss with olive or coconut oil, sprinkle with seasoning salt, and bake.
