At this moment I still have Sweet Meat squashes in storage. They make
the finest pudding (think pie with no crust) of anything I've used.
I've set started plants out and planted seed at the same time, and at
the end of the season the seeded plants had outperformed the started
plants, and all the squashes from each group were mature
I save my own seed of Sweet Meat.

I've never been a huge fan of the butternut flavor in my pumpkin pies
(though the texture is fantastic and I have had some butternuts that

but it tends to need a long season. My absolute favorite for pies
would have to be sweet meat, hands down. Unfortunately it is sometimes
harder to find seeds for them as a lot of the major catalogs don't seem
to have it. Territorial seeds carries it, as well as "sugar hubbard" a
sweet meat x blue hubbard hybrid.
I started my sweet meat seeds indoors last weekend :-)
