What are the pros?
What are the cons?
I grew up eating this and was sad to see it's nowhere to be found or heard of here in Georgia. Here are my notes for next year:1. Taste was bland straight out of the garden; it's a good variety to cure. 2. They rot from the outside in so don't be put off by even a giant black rotting section. The squash skin will scar any breaks or bug attacks3. Leaf droop cured with watering means it is root bound -- deeper square foot garden hill, next time. No more than 1 per 9sqft...best to use a bottomless bed. Needs full sun.4. Very rich planting mix with supplements for the incredible growth. 5. Squash bugs and vine borers are a problem. Companion plant nasturtiums, a potted habanero, marigolds and onion. Regular squishing rounds. A very dilute mix of water, soap, and a drop of tea tree in a spray bottle seemed to help repel the bugs.6. Ground plant no earlier than 2 weeks after the last frost; won't grow well until it's warm anyway. 7. Try a second round of plants the end of June/July 1st with regular bug checks. (August planting doesn't appear promising-- cooled off too much and the growth is weak.)
