I really enjoy squash. Do any of you grow an unusual variety?

Nothing unusual here either, just usual summer squash and Pennsylvanian Dutch Crook Neck for winter use.

Always planted straight neck or crook neck for summer squash. I planted one this year call Lemon Squash  because of the color and shape. Wife and I think it is the best we have ever had and so does everyone that tried it. They are very bug resistance and bear longer than most yellow squash. It's the one I will plant next spring.

Upon reading the title, I thought someone had stepped on a bug.

Squash is one veg. that I don't like. From the time I was a kid I wouldn't eat it. This was a bit of an issue because my parents love squash. They buy it by the bushel from local farmers every fall.  Butternut is the one i hear them mentioning the most.

Hubbard squash it has such a hard shell that I cut them open with the saws all but my hole family loves them Cucurbita maxima
Cucurbita maxima, one of at least five species of cultivated squash, is one of the most diverse domesticated species, perhaps with more cultivated forms than any other crop. Wikipedia
Scientific name: Cucurbita maxima
Rank: Species

Even Butternut varies. Some of the locals grow a version that is huge and grows in a horseshoe shape.

That is what I grow Penn. Dutch Crookneck. Get more bang for the buck. I like to peel the long neck, slice it into steaks and fry in a little butter and finish it off with a sprinkling of brown sugar. Tastes pretty good to me during the winter.

Put a spoonful of apple butter on it. That's good too.
