What are the pros? huge vines

What are the cons? some leaves dying off

Review:

first time growing these. they are huge, almost growing several inches overnight. this is only the second year that I am able to keep the squash plants alive because of the squash vine borer. I came up with a neat little trick and only requires a tiny amount of Spinosad and wood ash. So I am very happy with the results

What are the pros? Prolific and big .

What are the cons? Prefer a sweeter flesh .

Review:

Successfully grew these in cool climate , southern New Zealand . They flowered early , and set fruit easily . We got 1 or 2 big blue pumpkins on each vine . A vigorous plant . They got aphid infestations early on , but ladybird larvae cleaned them up . No sprays needed . Fruit dried off quickly in autumn , 8 - 15 kgs each . Good for roasting , soups , casseroles . Best if you quarter them and gift 3 pieces to neighbours !

What are the pros? flavor

What are the cons? no complaints

Review:

I read someplace to drop your hubbard squash on concrete(driveway, sidewalk) and it would break up and would be easier to use then. I tried it and it worked great.

What are the pros? Tastes fantastic! Pie, soups.

What are the cons? Deer liked the vines.

Review:

These grew like gangbusters! One even went up the side of the screened porch where I had to dislodge it, putting it back on the ground. Then another vine tried to climb into the Maple tree so I had to redirect that vine, also. The vines seemed to grow another foot each time I looked at them. Provided lots of fun and interest. The squashes were huge, weighing at least 20 lbs each with each vine producing about 2 squashes. In my opinion, these are some of the best squashes to use for pies, puddings, savory squash soup, etc. It took a large knife and a hammer to crack the shells, cutting them open. Then I cleaned out the pieces and baked them. (Reserve seeds for growing next year or fry/bake them for eating). If you mash butter, brown sugar, a tiny drop of vanilla and a dusting of cinnamon into the cooked pulp, you'll think you are in Heaven.
