(C. maxima) 85-105 days. This colorful variety was grown by the Lakota Sioux. It is pear-shaped, and flame-red with green streaks at the bottom. So attractive for fall decorations. The flesh is fine-grained and sweet with a great nutty taste. A wonderful squash that ranks among the most beautiful.

What are the pros? Seem to be compact

What are the cons? Very few grew

Review:

I planted three seeds and got three squash in a raised bed. I live in zone 9 and I actually expected a good crop. Sadly, the sun seems to be burning them before they are ripening. Also for the first time ever I noticed squash bugs in my garden and on them - they didn't get on my butternut squash at all. I'll try again next year in the ground in a shadier spot or maybe I'll replant for a potential second harvest. I really wanted some for storage. :(

What are the pros? Nutty flavor, beautiful color

What are the cons? Deer love it too

Review:

One of the best tasting squash we have found. Keeps well in cool dry conditions well into May. Doesn't need extra sweetening with baking in a slow oven with butter or bacon. Sells well at Market due to the smaller size yet big enough to feed a family at Holidays. Cans exceptionally well. Keeps it flavor with preserving. This one made our every year growing list.

What are the pros? Squash color isn't bad

What are the cons? Incredibly low yield

Review:

Disappointing. Despite planting in manure amended soil and several rounds of fish emulsion throughout the season vines stayed very small, grew no more than 18" or so. Produced a reasonable number of blossoms, but fruit just didn't seem to set. Other squash & veggies I grew set fruit just fine, so I don't think it was a pollinator issue. I'd read reviews about how prolific this variety was so I only grew 3 vines, not wanting to overwhelm my pantry. Coming into harvest, I have exactly 3 softball-sized squash. I may change my mind if the flavor is incredible, but yield this low is a strong negative.

What are the pros? pretty

What are the cons? doesn't grow well in northeast

Review:

Grew 5 plants and got 2 squashes, 1 that was edible. I'm a commercial farmer and love adding weird and unusual varieties to my farmers' markets stand. These however will not be grown again, it just didn't do well in our area. We had an exceptionally dry and hot summer here in Vermont and the dryness may have affected productivity but i got plenty of butternuts, acorns, etc.

What are the pros? easy to train vines on fencing

What are the cons? long vines !

Review:

Trained these awesome vines to grow on arched cattle feedlot panels. This left plenty of room to grow this squash as well as my usual garden plants of beans, corn, tomato etc. Planted seeds 5-16-18 and the feedlot panels are covered in vines with volleyball sized colorful fruits hanging. So far the vines have been able to support the squash. We are half way through the growing cycle. Expecting to harvest around first week in August. Have never eaten this squash before. Hope to be able to can it !
