One of my new favorites

These are super easy to grow, taste great (similar to butternut), did well even with an aphid infestation, are huge, and store well. I'll be growing these yearly.

Will plant again.

I have never been a big fan of squash. I planted this variety this year and it has produced 5 squash on one vine. I am looking forward to canning some into soup and roasting as a side dish. The plant took over the garden so give it lots of space.
