Classy and decorative. Rivals the best winter squash for eating quality. The lightly ribbed, flattened round fruits are smooth and hard-shelled with a cool greenish-blue-gray color that makes them beautiful enough for table centerpieces and autumn displays. They weigh 9 to 11 pounds with a 10 to 12 inch diameter. The sweet orange flesh is fine-grained with flavor that compares with buttercup squash. Makes superb soups, stew, and pies plus it bakes and freezes well. Vigorous high-yielding vines have good resistance to Cucumber Mosaic Virus and Papaya Ring Spot.
