Gardeners' Notes:

Fantastic yield! About 30 fruits from a single plant. Crawled all over my cabbages and strangled them, but that was my fault.

Vigorous and prolific - Altogether a great cultivar.

There are "newer models" but she sets the standard

The Arikara tribe grew a similar heart-shaped squash, and this variety is believed to have been developed from the Arikara strain. Typical dark-green acorn. Deep orange flesh is sweet, dry and thick. Vines grow 6-8' long, good drought tolearance. Good keeper, hard to beat for baking. 58-90 days.

This is a vining acorn, medium dark green. It is sort of the grandaddy of the acorn squash family. It is typically acorn. I prefer the bush types, but if you don't mind vines like a cantaloupe, Table Queen is a good producer.
