Let us know what they taste like, and how thick is the fruit?

And I'd like to ^5 a fellow gardener with bind weed, now into the Zen phase of dealing with it......."Eh, its not so bad...."

Bindweed??? Gee! I thought that was just some kind of cushioning to keep the squash up off of the dirt!

(You know, the Hopi lived in pueblos. ;-)

As I was scrolling down, I didn't expect you to tell us that the other colors were also "Pueblos," Keen.

Any chance of white entering the mix?

Well, the Hopi White was gown right next to a few of the Wild Pueblo, so yes, i think there is a good chance of some crossing to have occurred. White is supposed to be a dominant trait. I'm not sure if the green mottling is dominant or not, but i think white with green mottling would look really cool.
