After hiding 800 years this squash made a reappearance this year in my garden. What took us so long?? It is delicious, with a very slight "fruity" taste to it, way up above an expected robust squash flavor. We've noticed that care has to be taken to get it out before the first frost . . . a couple of the smaller ones didn't take it too well and had to be eaten up immediately (but they were still delicious). But we have no complaints about it, and next years can't come soon enough for us.
