Review:

Grown in NW Arkansas, this squash took over half of my garden and one vine went 10-12 feet up a neighboring tree. They produced about 30 squash on two plants, and they stored well; the last one was eaten in December and it was still firm and tasty. They're quite hollow and the meat is thin, but man... the taste was amazing. Sweet, nutty, with a hint of butter nut and punkin. They make a great soup, although the green edible hyde makes the final product a little off-putting in color. Best slowly sauteed in a little ghee and a pinch of salt.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
