One of my favorites


Grew in southwest wi this past summer. Great flavor and yield. And has stored really well into the winter. Will definitely grow again

early producer


One of the first winter squash to flower and set in my garden. Several squash per vine. I trellised on cattle panel and used pantyhose hammocks to support ripening squash. Savory squash, small manageable size.
