Fun to Grow
Caylei from CT wrote on July 06, 2018

The plants have been a little slow to start off for me, maybe not as vigorous as other varieties. The fruit are compact, fun to grow. I am just getting fruit on the plant in early July. Very excited to try them on the grill.

I love the seeds that have been ordered in the past. I was amazed how quickly my order arrived. Last year when I couldn't find my round zucchini you had them available. I was thrilled.

Great squash
N Arrington from MD wrote on July 23, 2015

This is a mild-flavored squash, on a bush that tends to sprawl more than other bush types. Even at the larger size, the flavor is still mild. I've been slicing it very thin and sauteing in a little olive oil and herbs, sometimes with some bacon, onions, and/or tomatoes. Although we have had a lot of rain this past month, I see very little mildew, and only two small squash have rotted on the plant. The squash do have to be monitored if you want to get them while they are small.

Great producer with caveats

Pros: I have been harvesting these summer squash non-stop. They are definitely delicious and gorgeous to look at. Cons: I planted one of these in an 8x4 raised garden, and it's covered half of the bed with its leaves so it definitely sprawls a bit. I've also noticed a slightly unpleasant smell to the leaves and the squash that I haven't experienced with other summer squash I've grown. Takeaway: Tasty, but be sure to give it space and wash hands after handling!

Love,love,love this varity! I have never grown this type but there wasnt one bad thing to say.. Yummy flavor even when grown a little larger.
