I really liked the first one I ate and saved all the seed. Then I got another one and it was even better so I save it's seed separately. I haven't seen any other different kinds of squash at the store tho and this year there weren't even any different kinds of pumpkins, just standard orange or white jack o'lantern types.
I know you like Buttercup best also but I was wondering if you have a runner up that isn't like the others I listed? all of the above were terribly bland and some just tasted nasty to me.

Hey, going back to something you posted months ago about chickens who eat high carotene foods having yummy flesh and yummy dark egg yolks: Can chickens be fed grated carrots, and would that have a good effect? (I'm considering keeping chickens, and wouldn't have commercial feed or corn at all here, so I'm dreaming of possible winter feeds...)

The idea behind this breeding project is to move the thin vine (vine borer resistant) of the moschata into a plant that produces the lovely flavors of maxima squash.
