Positive paracelsus On Nov 7, 2008, paracelsus from Elmira, NY (Zone 6a) wrote:

Taste is okay but this variety was very prolific in this oddball weather year (first extreme heat, then unseasonably cool) and was grown in partial shade as well. I probably won't grow it again, though, because they are fairly easy to find in the grocery store.

A 95 day elongated hybrid from Hollar. Looks like a Delicata but it is a 12 lb spaghetti squash. Touted as the best tasting of the "noodle" squash.
