north georgia roaster -winter squash
The squash themselves are supposed to weigh around 20 pounds and can be used like most other winter squash and used as a replacement for pumpkin. Being this is our first year growing them I can't tell you what they are actually like when cooked. The squash are long , up to about 3 feet and are a yellowish orange in color at harvest. They are also one of the few varieties of winter squash that do well in the deep south where it is hot and often times drought like conditions. So far ours have done great and the leaves do not fold up and wither on the hot days like most squash types do.
