Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

Gills Bros Seed Company Says about Golden Delicious Squash....
"We take much pride in offering this remarkable squash of our own origin. We have not found any variety that will equal it for quality. It is the finest squash for pies and even picked young as summer squash, the quality is outstanding. It cooks extra dry, fine grained and sweet. Many of our friends say it is better than a sweet potato. ....a fine keeper. It grows vigorous and produces heavy crops"
