Huge and prolific flavor okay
Easy to Grow 5.0
EarlyMaturity 4.5

What are the pros? Hilariously prolific, HUGE

What are the cons? Taste is fine, not perfect


We have grown many different varieties of squash in our Northern California backyard, but this one is the one we still talk about. The year we grew this, it was so intensely prolific that it climbed up our lemon tree and we had HUGE two foot (longer maybe?) long squash hanging down from the tree. It looked like our lemon tree was having an identity crisis! The flavor is fine, but not my most favorite squash (it isn't as moist or sweet as some others). It's a great producer though, and it didn't have any problems. It really wanted to take over the yard! I think I'd grow it again just for the fun of it - or if I wanted to have a huge crop of squash to freeze.
