From plant breeder and professor Frank Kutka, of the College of Menominee Nation, 'Table Grace' is a composite population tending toward an early bush acorn. It includes a range of open-pollinated and hybrid varieties in its parentage, and has been selected for early flowering, bush form, leaf health, and flavor. According to Frank, "It may be the answer for those looking for an earlier Table Queen Bush." Definitely worth giving a try!
NOTE: Frank is an amazing plant breeder, but unfortunately did not take any photos of this squash. He has done great work on this squash but no actual photos are available at this time, so this is a photo of acorn squash from Wikimedia Commons. Special thanks to Christopher Sessums from Gainesville, US of A, for the photo.
