What are the pros? Very strong plants

What are the cons? Needed to give them more room

Review:

I made the "mistake" of not allowing enough room for these large, sturdy plants. They are taking over the garden! I am thrilled to have the chance to try them, and I will share them with some of my students' parents, who are from Guatemala.

What are the pros? Beautiful, unusual squash

What are the cons? Takes over everything

Review:

I would continue to grow these if it weren't for how wild and unruly they get. They don't play nice with others and I only get one squash per HUGE vine. One year it climbed up my back stairs and up the side of my house. I am going to guess the vine was about 100' long. I got one 12# squash and one little one that rotted early. It needs a lot of space- but not a lot of attention. Made a nice pie though. Really gets the neighbors and visitors talking.

Guatemalan? / Sibley?

Review:

At first glance there is little difference between this any Sibley, these are however definately bigger. First year trial suggests not as good a croper as the Sibley but bigger and just as long lasting. Again useful shape for keeping as long round limits exposed inner flesh. Good flavour & fine texture, superb keeper, skins are rock hard, flesh is very firm

Review:

I grew this in the 2010 season and was very impressed with how gorgeous it is and how big! The size was the only drawback, but you can totally keep them in the fridge for a couple of weeks, slicing off only what you need. They store well so far so I haven't had to freeze any of it. Flavor is very good, I thought similar in taste and texture to butternut. A very popular item with my CSA except for the earlier season, larger squash. They get smaller towards the end of the season.
