Introduced before 1860, this is a large, 7 in. across, scalloped yellow fruit with very distinctive flavor. Plants are vigorous and resistant to squash bugs. Bush plant. I have grown this cultivar in the past. It has very good flavor. Yields are small compared to modern hybrids like Sunburst. I found it just as susceptible to vine borers as competitive cultivars.
