Bred by David Podoll, this buttercup-type variety is a cross between Hubbard, Gold Nugget and other maximas. You benefit from over 40 years of selection work: our family has been selecting for deep orange color, thick flesh, rich taste, sweetness, smooth texture, vigor and hardiness in cold weather. The end-result is a real work-horse variety with the ability to produce solid yields for you in variable conditions. This full-flavored, rich tasting squash stars as a side-dish and is an excellent player in pies and desserts.
