An AAS Winner from 1938 and still one of the best heirloom squashes. Uniform creamy lemon-yellow, club-shaped fruit. The firm flesh is nicely textured and nutty-tasting. Delicious sautéed, grilled or baked, or shred into rice before cooking to cut the carbs! Plant takes a beating from heat, bugs and even trampling, and just keeps on growing. Very prolific producer; cans and freezes well. Photo courtesy of Baker Creek Heirloom Seed.
