I finished the other half of my single fruit last night. I would give ++ preference to grow it again based on taste if it were not so attractive to getting eaten by critters or rotting. Neither problems happened to the adjoining Butternut pollinator. I'll look for a few pics that show the inside.

I prevent rotting by placing the immature squash on top of a piece of pine board or other suitable object. Anything to keep the squash from sitting in wet soil.
