I find that winter squashes really differ as to flavor, so be sure you’ve tasted the ones you want to grow, unless you like to experiment. For example, I like the flavor of butternuts, but don’t like red kuri. Also, how do you like to use your winter squash in the kitchen? Just looking at an old Territorial Seed catalogue, Sweetmeat is a Northwest heirloom not known in the rest of the US, so it might be fun to grow, and supposedly makes a great “pumpkin” pie. Looking at all the choices makes me think about planting some for myself this year. I love squash soup, but baked squash could be yummy, too.
