What are the pros? pretty
What are the cons? poor yield, no heat tolerance
I've lived and gardened in the Deep South (Alabama, Georgia, now South Carolina) for almost 30 years, and I've learned some crops simply "don't do." This year, we had below average rainfall and 7 days in June with temperatures of 100 or above. From the Lakota, only 3 squash. Sad. In case you're thinking the heat was too much for winter squash, the butternut (also from Baker Creek) yielded 12 squash before it died.
If you're a hot-weather planter, be warned.
