I've grown this squash for a few years. I like that Gold Nugget grows more like a bush type squash and stays in its bed. It produces squash early, which is also a plus for my short Vermont season. It's the first squash that I start eating at the end of the summer. It stores well and each squash is a one person serving. In terms of flavor, it's consistent and good but not my favorite.
They produce fairly well, sometimes pretty good under Not the best circumstances. And very sweet, many folks here in Oregon think they taste like a sweet potatoe. And they are good keepers. I can eat one for dinner pretty easy, And no waste. They also make great pie.
