This is one of the most problem-ridden Squashes I have ever grown. The seeds take 50% longer to germ than others. The plant is slow to grow and by the time it produces one fruit, it is already on the decline from Powdery Mildew! But the fruit has one of the best tastes! That is why I still grow it ( been growing for 4 years)!
