What are the pros? Tasty naked seeds, pretty.
What are the cons? Lots of immature seeds.
The seeds truly are naked, tasty raw or roasted. I tried roasting some flesh, pretty good. Interestingly, the strings toasted up nicely, great crunchy bits to float on soup or add to salad. My plants got a slow start, but took off when the weather warmed up. They did get powdery mildew, common for squash in my coastal climate. Oh, the skins/rind is tough--which deterred the deer from eating them! Note these are BIG plants, they need lots of room. I will be growing these pumpkins again. These were drought tolerant with a heavy mulch layer.
