Yummy and versatile


The best versatile squash! We love it cubed and roasted. Better than sweet potato fries. Excellent in frittatas. Stores well. Turns orange in storage. I’m planting a larger crop this year. My husband who hates all squash is amazed he loves it.

Easy and delicious


Easy to grow, productive, and tasty. Outperformed both zucchini and Delicata in our zone 6b garden. Does spread like crazy, so give it space. Like Delicata, doesn’t require peeling. Will plant again.

my new favorite squash


I wrap mature fruits in foil and bake 400 degrees for 30 minutes. I let cool then slice lengthwise, remove seeds. Add butter and warm in microwave, then add a little maple syrup. No doubt my new favorite squash that can be grown on a fence.
