Last year, I grew the bush variety due to space but this year I grew the Waltham Butternut. Wow is butternut slow. Both varieties take a long time to get their female flowers. All my other cucurbits have had female flowers but it just bloomed its males. So to my question: how long from pollination to full grown (still green but done growing)? Should see females on it any day. All my cucurbits suffered a slow start due to a cold June but they have bounced back now. Looks like I will have a lot of spaghetti squashes. Those plants are putting out females left and right :). Thanks!
