we have grown this one for several years and the taste cant be beat,allthough we have lost our place for seed for this w/gourneys and burpees seems that as farmland goes to duplexes and apartments the catalogs have less and less. i would recomend this to anyone that is not crazy of squash the flavor and texture is better
