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

A cross between Blue Hubbard and Bush Buttercup strains, this early maturing squash produces 4-6 pound fruit on a semi-bush plant. A good keeper, with pale blue-skin and sweet, dense, meat that you can enjoy through the winter.
Winter Squash refers to those in the genus maxima including: acorn squash, banana squash, buttercup, hubbard squash and turban squash.
Heirloom winter squash comes in shapes round and elongated, scalloped and pear-shaped with flesh that ranges from golden-yellow to brilliant orange. Most winter heirloom squashes are vine-type plants whose fruits are harvested when fully mature. They take longer to mature than summer squash (3 months or more) and are best harvested once the cool weather of fall sets in. Winter Squash can be stored for months in a cool basement-hence the name "winter" squash.
