What are the pros? Fast, hardy, large, delicious!
What are the cons? Powdery mildew
I've tried growing many varieties of winter squash on Hawaii Island and this is quite possibly the best. Even with all the young fruits we lost to pickle worm and melon fly, our single plant has set 12 nice-sized squash and it's staring to make more! just picked our first squash only 78 days after planting and it is divine; such complex, rich, nutty flavor and smooth flesh. Oh, and the stem-end of the fruit was just as large as the blossom-end! Have experienced powdery mildew as with most heirlooms ("Seminole" being an exception), but this plant is putting up a fight as well as new leaves. It'll be interesting to see how long this plant can grow here!
Will definitely be planting more of this variety for personal use and local marketing.
