What are the pros? Best flavor, keeper, uses
What are the cons? In hills avg 1 squash/vine
I've grown this squash extensively for five years now. And I've had a chance to compare it, head to head, with over a dozen other squashes. This one wins hands down and it's the only one I'll grow next year. This can get very large with solid necks of squash. It has wonderful flavor. It's easy to process. It's great for canning, fresh backing, pies, in other recipes--completely versatile. It is the best keeper I've grown, outperforming various cushaws, banana squash, pumpkins, the wheel types, the warty ones. I can't say enough good things about this squash. You can take the skin off with a carrot peeler and cut it into chunks and can it. You can cut it in half and bake it with spices of your choice. Puree the cooked squash for pies. This is just a great winner, it's prolific, and it will feed a large family with almost no work. You can train the vines so plant it on the garden perimeter and direct the vines outward. Even 1 per vine (sometimes 2) gives great yield.
