Giant squash that keep extremely well. I picked some that weren't ripe (due to the 140-150 days maturitiy) and we have been eating them all winter. I still have one remaining that I picked in October and it is just about 100% orange now. No signs of spoilage and it has been 6 months!

Every year I would try something new in the garden, I tried this one a few years ago and it has earned a spot every year. Its sweeter than acorn, smoother than butter cup. I cut it into 1" cubes and roast them in the oven with carrots potatoes and parsnip. I'll always grow this one. you have to try it to believe. I never thought a squash this big could be so good.

Biggest winter squash I ever grew
Reviewed By: SAndy Sobel (Rootstown, Ohio)
I raise rabbits to fertilize my garden. When I planted this variety of squash, it over ran my garden but grew lots of squash over 3 ft. long. The flesh was wonderful and full flavored.

Absolutely ginormous butternut squashes. Friends thought these were watermelons. They *smell* like watermelons when you cut them. They're just that sweet! One smallish one (25lbs) took up 2 half sheet pans with slices when I cooked it. Kids love these cooked in pancakes & so good for them! wonderful grilled too. 250lbs of squash from one vine is a bargain for the space. Next year we'll take even better care of them and hopefully get even more. That 250lbs was w/o watering, mulching, fertilizing or really weeding. We let it wander on the lawn. Still about 40lbs of squashes left on vine. Hope they get ripe before frost. We'll use frost cloth if things get iffy. The days to yield (140 days) is the truth, though. We'll start these even earlier, in peat pots, next year. Definitely planting this one again. Friends will be planting this one as well, they were simply amazed.
