What are the pros? Easy to grow, Tasty

What are the cons? Overruns rest of the garden!

Review:

I planted one hill (3 seeds) of these in early May. The vines grew easily and quickly, growing into all the nearby beds, and even through my garden fence out to the road! I planted 9 varieties of winter squash this year and these were the first to set fruit and the first to mature. By the end of July, I had 9 ripe squash! They're very tasty with dry, dense, flavorful flesh. It's now mid August and the vines are still setting new fruits! I will grow this one every year, but I think I'll give it more space to itself next time!

What are the pros? Heavy yield, fragrant

What are the cons? Space hog

Review:

Admittedly, I planted 3 together. I didn't know what would make it. All did and they need daily redirection to stay in their space. I have a dozen or more ripening squashes. Best part thus far: The flowers smell like pure warm honey fresh from the hive. I haven't had the ripe squash yet, but I will plant this yearly just for the flowers alone, now! Pollinators LOVE it.

Review:

They grow in northern Maine where the season isn't as long as else where. They have a lovely taste and texture...they make a lovely pie and prefer them to pumpkin. The matured when my butternut didn't, which I also like very much. The Red Kuri seem to keep better than the Butternut squash over the long winter months.

Review:

I planted these pretty late in the summer, not even sure we'd get a harvest, but we got several off the vines before the frost. I didn't get all the vines pulled, and noticed the vines started growing again, even after frost! :) Not that it mattered here in Nebraska, but interesting. I scrape out the seeds and bake. So good. The description says dry, but I found it smooth, sweet, and moist with no strings. I'll plant next year, earlier in the season. As other reviewers have noted, this vine is super vigorous. In less than a month, it had filled in a large space and taken over my tomato cages, with fruit hanging on the cages. :)

Review:

Easily my favorite winter squash for eating! Vines get super long and mature quickly. Direct sow in May. Harvested several squash in early July, then the plant stopped flowering and some of the foliage died during the hot period in July and early August. Now that the nights are cooler, it's back to growing nonstop and I have 4 more squash maturing, and it's still flowering so I may end up with more! Less sweet than most winter squash and small enough that it's easy to process. Takes over my whole driveway and climbs into the neighbor's yard but totally worth it!
