What are the pros? delicious, pretty fruit

Review:

I planted three seeds and all three germinated. The plants were large and healthy with lots of blossoms, male and female. One plant yielded maybe four or five mature fruit; the other two plants yielded none. I did have problems with squash bugs and vine borers; I'd love to be the reviewer who said that his or her plants "laughed off" these pests! I also saw very few pollinators and ended up trying to hand-pollinate whenever I could, but the female blossoms were tucked deep into the plant and were a little difficult to reach; when I could reach them, often they didn't open before the fruit just dropped off. The flavor of the squash I did get, however, was excellent. I'll try these again, either growing them under row covers or planting them later in the season or, probably. both.

Review:

In northern Arkansas we have many pest that destroy zucchini. This squash laughs them all off. I've had terrible problems with both Squash vine borers and squash bugs when growing other summer squashes. This one doesn't seem to be bothered with either pest. I've grown them twice and am growing them this year. I've had very good results both times. and I'll probably grow them every year now. The fruits are best when only apple sized. You'll get lots of them, too. They have a nutty flavor I like. The plants are quite big, they take over their row quickly. Large leaves keep weeds from being too big a nuisance by shading them. Cook them as you would any summer squash or zucchini.

Review:

This was my first summer growing this variety and I am regretting only growing 2 plants. This squash has a mild and lovely taste. I saut? it with a tiny bit of butter, salt and pepper, and it is delicious (even without seasoning). The plant is prolific, low maintenance, and it is semi-compact. I harvest them when they are between 3-4" and they are delicious! This will be a staple in my garden from now on.

Review:

Best tasting summer squash I've ever grown, fast growth, but low pollination rate....seems like the critters in my area don't go for this squash but zip over to my lemon squash no problem. I've had to hand pollinate this one to get fruits but when i do it's just the best buttery intense squash flavor, raw or cooked. Even the rind is edible its so tender. One even got to pie pumpkin size and was still flavorful and tender when cooked.
