What are the pros? Bug and Disease Resistant
What are the cons? None
I have HUGE problems with Squash Vine Borer, Squash Bugs, and Cucumber Beetles, as well as mildew. These Cushaws received no special treatment, as a test - I just planted them in my prepared area and watered them.
Result: Off the three vines I got 4 fruits, all right about 25# each. They are a handsome squash, and very decorative while being stored. They were covered in squash bugs, which seemed to not be able to harm them. Vine borers laid a few eggs on them, but at harvest time I saw only a couple larva actually in the vines, which were not damaged in the slightest. Cucumber beetles seemed to pretty much ignore them, and the plants never got mildew.
They *did* take a little while to get going, but once they did (late July after a late May planting) they were off to the races.
They taste great - best for pies, but usable for any purpose. I will DEFINITELY be growing these every year now. Give them a try!

What are the pros? grows fast
What are the cons? nothing
Awesome squash. Thought I would get one per plant. Grew 3 plants and got 5 nice squashes. One was 40 lbs and the smallest was 25 lbs. They are delicious too1
What are the pros? Looks, Size, Easy
What are the cons? Taste
This squash was so beautiful. The skin is smooth and so white it almost glows--no where near as blemished as it appears in the picture on the website. Some have faint green stripes. They are also very large, 10-20 lbs. They were definitely bug resistant-nothing touched them. I neglected them--didn't even water them--and grew near an oak tree where almost nothing does well for me. They took a long while to get going and I thought I would not end up with any here in Michigan, but I was wrong, and got 3 very nice ones from 2 vines. The taste was bland and the flesh was very pale and unappetizing in appearance. The seeds were delicious and so easy to collect and clean--not sloppy and attached to strings like a Jack O Lantern's seeds.

What are the pros? Size and ease of growth
I took my giant Jonathan squash to the local fair and was awarded grand champion in the horticulture division!
What are the pros? Squash bug resistant
What are the cons? none
First year growing this gem. So far have harvested over 120lbs. One was so heavy I needed a wheel barrel. Looking forward to many pies!!! I've already used the puree in waffles and pancakes. I'll grow this again and again. Thank you. Thank you.
