    As I got bogged down in a flurry of bubble wrap and pink post it packetings I forgot to say: 4 big and 3 small to all. Oddly enough the little ones seem to produce the Turks, Crown prince and Gem. The large seeds threw out mainly Butternut but also something interesting with frilly leaves, Dunno what as mine was attacked and snuffed it before the fruit got to any recognisable size.
    Also germination is vastly variable so don't give up on the slow ( or apparantly non existent starters), Some appeared way after others were off and producing flowers but actually overtook them in the fruit production.
    That's why I love growing squash. They're the cats of the vegetable world and do exactly what they like with impunity.
