What are the pros? beautiful sweet nutty flavor
What are the cons? Ants love the flowers
My daughter gave me this seed at the end of the 2012 growing season. I misplaced them for a season. Planted in Spring of 2014 thinking that I had nothing to lose. They came out of the ground like charging bulls. They need space, of the 3 types of squash I'm growing, this is by far the best. Everyone I give it to is impressed and they want more. All claiming that it is the best squash they have ever eaten.
The ants can suck the life out of the flowers. I sprinkle cinnamon into the flowers in the morning which works beautifully. The ants are not attracted to the flowers of my other squash plants. If you have the room, grow this plant. If you don't have the room, somehow make it work. Well worth the effort.
