What are the pros? Prolific, Pest Resistant
What are the cons? None
Last year was my first try at "real" vegetable gardening and I tried the straight neck squash from Baker Creek. It produced huge, gorgeous plants. Shortly after it started fruiting, I had my 1st encounter with squash vine borers. I was heart broken when all of my squash/zuc plants died and decided not to bother with squash again (I don't handle disappointment well...).
This year I decided to try the lemon squash after reading reviews and I am SO impressed! I'm growing mine vertically and the main vine of my lemon squash "tree" is almost 6 feet tall! It has 3 other vines trailing to the sides (think A-frame) and is really something to see. While I have hand-picked a few squash bugs from it, I have not seen any evidence (yet) of the nasty SBV. The plant is literally covered in squash of various stages and I am now picking at least 3 fruit per day!!
I am an avid reader of reviews, so I hope this helps someone. I HIGHLY recommend this squash variety, especially for beginners!

What are the pros? taste great, prolific
What are the cons? dont let them get too big
We have sold these at market for years. We always try to pick them small because they have fewer seeds and are tender and sweet. But eventually some get away from us and grow big. Those work for Halloween decorations =)

What are the pros? Healthy, Heavy Yield
We planted this vigorous little summer squash in the middle of our winter squash crop last year to protect it from pests. It yielded early and all the way up until frost with tons of wonderfully tasty little fruits.
This year, a mystery plant appeared among our other squash. It turned out to be a Hyrbid of the Lemon and our Cream of the Crop acorn squash. The resulting fruit were twice the size of the larger acorns, very firm-skinned compared to either parent, warty, and delicious. Woops!

Planted early in central texas , i took a chance and planted early April. I figured its seeds. I can order more if theres a feeeze and if not i will get a jump start. I had a amzing harvest!! Last year i planted crook neck , straight neck, etc. I had a mollion squash bugs! It was horrible! I looked up pest resitance squah and these cute lemon round squash were in the rare seeds site. Oh i was excited i also ordered the round zucchini seeds. I had a great harvest i planted 2 sets staggered every 2 weeks planted new seeds between the started planted and had plenty to share as they lept producing! Only draw back is now its september and still warm enough to have planted a second fall frop but ran out of very many seeds . I had 6 seeds left and planted 3 weeks ago and here we go looks like i might have a few for late fall. Its Texas I love them, if you like Any summer squash you have got to try these. I wont plant any others except for the round zucchini and round yellow squash.
