What are the pros? Tastes
What are the cons? Takes a lot of garden space.
I grew 3 hills, each hill being 3 feet in diameter and about a foot high, with lots of rabbit manure and a cup of Azomite. I planted the seeds about ten inches apart and about an inch deep after soaking the seeds for about a half an hour. I planted 3 seeds in two of the mounds and 1 in the third mound. I mulched around the mounds with about 6-8 inches of grass hay. All of the seeds germinated. They grew like gang busters. After they had already started flowering the rains stopped. We went five or six weeks with no significant rain. There was no lack of pollinators with bumblebees, honey bees and different types of wasps and flies. Out of the seven plants I ended up with 37 squash that I kept. And four that got rotten spots on them that the pigs were thankful for. Even though my area of the country is notorious for squash vine borers they did not bother these olants- I've been told that is true for other squashes in the moshata family as well.

What are the pros? Big harvest, excellent keeper
What are the cons? none
I have grown this squash for two years now and it's definitely a favorite of mine. I have huge yields of squash that keep all the way up until next year's squash is ripe. They really DO keep well!
The vines are huge, though, so if you have limited space, this wouldn't be the best idea...

What are the pros? productive, vigorous
You find these everywhere here in Lancaster County. I was probably a teenager before I realized there were other table-quality squash out there. They famously make good pies. Anyway, if you want a workhorse variety for food production, it's hard to go wrong with the old 'neck pumpkin'. They grow strong and far, are disease resistant, and produce several 10-20 lb fruits per vine, from my experience. I thought mine were in decline, but the vines have revived and set new fruit in the past couple of weeks-- we'll see if they beat the frost. It's been a bumper crop for sure! As for taste and texture, they're the standard I grew up with and judge others against. There are prettier varieties, but not many can beat these for eating.

These grew great for me, were easy to peel and delicious. Defiantly a grow again variety!
