Ratings & Reviews

Winter Squash- Sweet Dumpling

Great compact plant that grew well. Although it produced masses of baby squash only a few fully developed. Think it was a pollination problem. Will definitely try again as they are cute, delicious and were a great talking point when I stuffed and served whole or baked, used the flesh for soup and served back in the shell. Also great for singles as you can eat the whole fruit in 1 or 2 meals.
