Floridor is healthy, thriving, and productive in our northwest PA garden. I like it much better than "8 Ball" (which we are also growing) due to the strength of the vine, the productivity, and the appearance of the squash when ripe. Very striking lemony yellow with green stem. We've tried eating it at several sizes (from golf ball to baseball) and pretty good in every instance but I prefer it at the larger baseball (or, if you will, billiard ball) size.
