Garden City, MI
What are the pros? Easy to grow. Many large fruit
What are the cons? Susceptible to powdery mildew
Bought package of seeds on a whim for 50 cents and was rewarded with a garden full of large fruits. Seeds were planted the third week of May in full sun. Plants were easy to grow and did not require weeding after the leaves were fully developed. Plants grew very vigorously setting numerous fruits. Give these Cushaws plenty of room where vines can roam. Due to wet growing this season in SE Michigan the leaves/vines started to die off in mid-August due to powdery mildew. However by this time most of the fruits were mature. Since it's still too hot to store these fruits in the root cellar they will be processesd and frozen for later use. Easy plants with good results for children to grow providing your garden has the room.
