Review:

Grew these in 2013 in SW Iowa. Soil was very wet, and I started the seed in finger packs. Finally at Memorial Day I mudded them in, with a teaspoon of epsom salts. Plants were vigorous and produced well, almost too well. most got very large (enough for 6 - 8 pumpkin pies each) some squash bugs noticed but plants seemed to keep ahead of them. Made good lighter colored pumpkin pie, and were pretty good as squash, came on early with the acorn squash. Will plant the rest of the seed this year, think I got some of my customers open to their size, shape, and color. Again they were a lot of squash per plant and fairly good sized.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
