(C. moschata) 100 days. A famous, old, traditional variety from the heart of France. It has a sweet, musky fragrance and a delicious, sweet flesh that is used in jams, soups, and many French recipes. Small 3-5 lb. fruit is perfect for roasting and have deep orange flesh. Oblong, bell-shaped fruit is tannish-orange in color when mature. We are happy to introduce this flavorful variety to America.

Review:

Mo 5B. Planted this for the first time a couple years ago. At first I couldn't figure out why my butternut squash wasn't turning. When I realized I had planted the sucrine I was thrilled at the results. Germination was an easy 100%. The smell is sweet and amazing. This is one of those I could cut open and eat raw it was just so good. Even our goats couldn't get enough and believe me with the number of plants I put in there was plenty. This variety just did not know how to stop producing. Even when vine borers got to them they seemed to root elsewhere and take off. When I went to plant last year I could not find my seeds and it was too late to order more. This year I found my packet and will be planting these in large numbers again.

What are the pros? It is orange like a carrot

What are the cons? Might be too large for One

Review:

I grew several varieties of squash this year. Until this summer I only knew about summer squashes, spaghetti squash, and pumpkins. I am not sure if the variety I ate today is this one or Palav Kadu squash. I had a lot of these, and I believe this is the one. The other variety did not produce anything. I emptied the seed cavity and filled it with peas and carrots. This was exactly the same color as the carrots which tells me that it is rich in beta carotene. It is far larger than a garden carrot. So if you eat one, you will be filling yourself with beta carotene. I could not eat half of one but tried. They are huge. It was also stringy like a spaghetti squash. Some squashes do not have the same beta carotene deeply red orange color but might have other shades of orange or yellow. That's okay. Those that have other carotene colors are good for different things as long as the color is rich, and this one was. Fragrant also. I will probably grow it again as a hybrid. I like hybrids.

What are the pros? Size of the mature fruit.

What are the cons? Stringy flesh like acorn w-s

Review:

2014, first year growing this variety, also saw me growing Choctaw Sweet Potato Winter Squash as well as Upper-Ground Sweet Potato W-S. The Sucrine yielded 12 Butternut-squash-looking fruit from two plants, all in the 3-5-pound range. All stored well and I began to dine on them in February 2015. The flesh was a glorious slightly red-ish orange from the oven-baked fruit; sadly, though, the flesh was quite stringy and quite inferior to succulent, smooth flesh that Butternut and Choctaw Sweet Potato produce. For this year's garden, I'd consider Sucrine only because of its convenient size. But, because Choctaw has always done quite well for me, I'll likely go with Choctaw only. Other reviewers have reported Sucrine's smooth, non-stringy flesh. I would suggest that genetic variation among the seed, different cultural practices, and varied local growing conditions may account for our different experiences. I'd like to hear more from others on this.

What are the pros? tasty not stringy keeps v.well

What are the cons? none, will grow again

Review:

Have grown this two years and will continue to grow. Did well in container, got to at least 10 lb. Great keeper. Seems to like being grown vertically, hanging fruit need support and become large and perfectly shaped.

What are the pros? Great keeper, good flavor

What are the cons? low yield

Review:

This squash was a hit at the farmers market, lots of complements on the sweetness and flavor. It is important to allow it to cure completely before cooking in order to get the best flavor and texture. We had it in the greenhouse for two weeks before selling it. Will be buying more seeds to grow more this season.
