What are the pros? Low maintenance
What are the cons? Hard to tell when mature
These squash are some of my favorite as far as flavor and texture go. They're dense and a little savory but just sweet enough. Pan fried in butter, topped with fresh picked cranberries and a touch of honey they are a perfect substitute for oatmeal. The seeds add a bonus crunch and flavor.
They did pretty well in a warm summer (for AK) with some cool nights and very dry conditions. I had to harvest too soon and they didn't keep at all, though. I didn't think they were going to produce and then, suddenly I had fruits on all my plants. They got to a good size pretty quickly. I think they'll be a little challenging to tell when they're completely mature. I'll be trying these again and treating them better!
In the meantime, suggestions for a winter squash that is less day sensitive than most would be awesome...
