The most popular market variety in this area, well-known for its fine texture and sweet, dry, bright orange flesh. Considered by many to be one of the best eating squashes ever. Reliable producer of solid, 3 – 4 lb, round, dark-green squash with a lighter green ‘cup’ area underneath. Excellent keeper, easy to peel, adaptable to a wide range of recipes, high in beta-carotene. Good choice for smaller gardens, moderate-sized plants won’t take over.
