What are the pros? Seeds, taste, prolific, easy
What are the cons? Seeds break, shape, stringy
Grew these in my market garden this year for the seed. We got like a cup to a cup and a half of seeds per pumpkin. They grew prolifically. The seeds are great straight out of the pumpkin. Easy to harvest after cutting the hard rind. the inside had a fairly dry seed cavity and dark green seeds popped right out. Roasted some with oil and popcorn salt. Delicious. Also tried baking the flesh. Smelled great while baking. Was stringy like pasta squash, and with no seasoning, was bland. I added a touch of butter, a pinch of sugar and a hint of cinnamon and it was so good I froze several packs for later! The downfall is that many of them grew in what I would consider ugly shapes. Some people enjoyed that for creepy pumpkin carving! They sold well when the Howden's sold out.
