Great acorn/dumpling type squash. Very decorative and nice roasted. Less sprawling than most winter squash and with proper care, very productive. Often 8+ per vine all in the 1-2 pound range. Very good flavor and sweetness. Well received at our small produce stand.
i have grown this squash from your seeds for a number of years. It is quite beautiful (I use a few of them every year as Thanksgiving decorations), and in my cold, dank basement it keeps until March. I live at 6,500’ so have a short growing season. I start the seeds in mid-May in pots and plant them outside around the beginning of June. I know the conventional wisdom is that squash don’t transplant well, but this works fine for me with both acorn squash, Hubbard squash and even zucchini; it gives me a needed head start on the growing season for winter squash and a couple of extra weeks of fresh zucchini. It can freeze here as early as Labor Day so a little head start is worth the effort.
I love all kinds of squash and figured that with these being so pretty with the colorful skins the flavor may have been lacking, but I was wrong. In my small. 4 x 8 bed I got almost 20 squashes. I wish we could post pictures because they were so pretty. I plant in mid June and by planting later seem to skip bugs; nothing bothered these and we loved eating them. Will grow again.
