Great taste
Reviewed By: Tim (Smyrna, Tennessee)
This winter squash performed the best of all the squash we planted this past year. Great rich taste with a darker orange flesh compared to acorn squash. Heavy producer.

Nice Product!
Reviewed By: Mary T (Ypsilanti, MI)
"I grew this variety of butternut last season (my first season with a garden), and I was SUPER excited that two of my plants were successful! Due to limited space and my love for butternut squash, I ignored the packets and books, and decided to grow this in containers... Really it just stunted the growth of the plant, each had only one squash fully develop (each about 6"" long), but both were excellent quality! I can't wait to grow it again this year... In the ground... :)"

Excellent!
Reviewed By: Danny (Beaverton, Oregon)
This squash is one of my all time favorite! More meat, less seeds! If you're thinking about growing it, you will not be disappointed.
