Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Farmerdill On Jan 28, 2005, Farmerdill from Augusta, GA (Zone 8a) wrote:

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.


This plant has been said to grow in the following regions:

Pueblo, Colorado
