(C. pepo) 85 days. Beautiful, warted, orange and green striped fruits weighing 5-10 pounds. This is a great choice for fall decorations. This was developed as an oil seed pumpkin so the seeds can be pressed to yield a dark nutty oil perfect for salad dressings or as accents in squash soups. Also, the flesh is good to eat. You can bake it like spaghetti squash because it has a similar texture.

What are the pros? green seeds are yummy

What are the cons? nothing

Review:

Grew this one last summer. It's near the end of March and I still have a few, so they keep very well without any special attention (15-20 celsius on a shelf on the main floor). When picked they were mostly still green but over the winter have turned a nice orange. It is indeed like a spaghetti squash. Overall pleased with it, but for productivity and taste I prefer Gete Okosomin and Galeux d'?ysines and Musqu?e de provence. Those were top 3 from many varieties I tried last summer.

What are the pros? Flavorful and productive

What are the cons? Wish I'd grown more!

Review:

The President of our garden club gets hers seeds from BAKER CREEK. She shared some of her 2015 seeds with me. In 2017, I grew a few plants from everything she gave me...just so that I would know which ones taste the best. Now I know why she gets so many seeds from you. They're all good! The four Scheherazade came in at 8 - 10 pounds each. Roasting the seeds made a wonderful snack. Roasting the squash on parchment paper intensifies the wonderful squash flavor. I don't know how long these beauties will keep in storage because I ended up eating all of them by Thanksgiving! This variety was especially good. Now I know to plant more in 2018!

pretty squash but few fruits

What are the pros? quick, reliable germination

What are the cons? few total fruits

Review:

I had great germination success. The plants were quick to sprout, and I didn't have any 'duds'. The plants grew well and thrived. The fruits I got were beautiful. They were just like the picture, only with a bit less pronounced warts. (Variation is to be expected) My only disappointment is that out of about 8 total plants I only got 4 squash. For me I likely won't grow it again for that reason, as they take up too much garden space to not bear well. (I also trellis all my vining squash to save square footage) I love to try new varieties, but the majority of the produce I grow I sell so I I've got to make every inch count.

What are the pros? Hey, all of it sprouted.

What are the cons? None so far.

Review:

Not a thorough review, as I've had a great experience sprouting these and just placed in the ground yesterday. I waited until the first true leaves started to show before planting. They've all responded well so far. Perhaps I've been just a little too eager to get these growing. The high germination rate (every single one grew) leaves me very hopeful.
