What a keeper!
I still have one of these squashes in my larder - unblemished. What keeper! Prolific. Dry, sweet flesh. Great with butter, salt and pepper, or tahini and maple syrup!
Great flavor and yield
Grew in southwest Wisconsin this past summer. Really great flavor, high yielding, and is storing pretty well.. I will definitely grow again. Everyone I've shared it with loves it

Fantastic squash! Has wonderful flavor, a great keeper we still have a few in the basement. They are smaller but perfect for a small family. We will always grow these!
