What are the pros? easy to grow, hardy, sweet
What are the cons? none
I started seeds indoors 4 weeks before transplanting. They grew quickly in quart sized pots and were good sized with excellent root by the time I transplanted(May 20th) with minimal hardening off. That same week, it got really cold. I would lose them, and although most of the pre-existing vine died off, they came back with a vengeance from the base of the plant. I planted two for pollination. At first i was worried. All the flowers kept ending up male, so I was certain I wouldn't get any decent pumpkins by the time a female flower appeared. Once they did appear, I pollinated by hand, going from the male flowers, to the females to ensure they wouldn't be wasted. After that, the pumpkins grew quickly! Way bigger and faster than any other I've ever grown! They would have gotten bigger had I added manure like my neighbor did to his. These pumpkins smell like watermelon or canteloupe fresh. Guts are more dry than slimy, so it's easy to clean. Flesh is very sugary and an ideal baking choice
