I grew this for the first time this year. The yields were high and it made wonderful pumpkin breads and pie. It is not a good keeper which is why I'm giving it a neutral rating. If you grow this make sure you process and freeze before they turn. I had to toss a few in the compost heap because they began rotting before I used them. Shelf life was about a month. I would grow again.
