So delicious!!

This squash has the most fantastic flavor of any squash I have ever tasted. And, as a serious bonus, it is easy to peel/cut, unlike its butternut cousin. We did a shoddy job of starting these indoors last season so most of the plants succumbed to mildew before we could get them transplanted outside but the few that survived yielded my new favorite vegetable. We saved seeds from those plants and have direct seeded those into our garden this year. Fingers crossed for a bumper crop!!
