What are the cons? gets huge
Ok so this is an update to my previous review. It is early may and I just harvested this season's crop. We had a very mild winter with a few nights of frost followed by extremely hot days. The plants leaves shriveled with frost but quickly came back with new ones to continue into flower and fruit. I have to say again this is one of the easiest plants I have ever grown here. Some early fruits got knock off the vine and ripened fine left in a sunny window. The rest I pet ripen on the vine. My harvest is made up of squash from 8" diameter to 34" diameter. Some are huge bigger than any other time. This plant took over my whole garden which is approximately 40x20. Amazingly it kept out weeds but did not suffocate existing plants. Our days got up 90 this week with no effects to the fruit or plant. These make the best pumpkin pie and grilled slices are awesome. I have one ons shelf in my pantry as an experiment that has been there for almost 2 years. Eat young or mature! Must have.
