I have grown these before and never had a problem...this time not 1 seed has germinated. Very disappointed.
Festival squash is very reliable, excellent sweet flavour and a nice size for a smaller meal. It's a bit awkward to peel, so probably best baked in its skin. Tastes better than a lot of butter nuts.
