Joseph Lofthouse’s favorite winter squash for taste. This is a super-early winter squash, bred by Joseph in his extremely short-season farm in Paradise, Utah. Selected for small size, and sweet, dry, spicy taste. Productivity is low which can be
forgiven because of the glorious taste. Fruits around 2-3 pounds. Roughly 75 to 90 days to maturity. Plant after danger of frost is past.
