This AAS winner is by far a garden favourite. It produces heavy yields of 12 inch/31cm, light-tan fruit that keep exceptionally well. Each 3-6lb blocky pear shaped squash has rich, creamy yellow-orange flesh with a delightful, nutty flavour. Not only famous for flavour, this heirloom variety also has good resistance to disease.
