What are the pros? Easy to cook; tastes great
What are the cons? Long growth time for my area.
Tastes great. Easy to cook; Cut in half,put butter and brown sugar in cavity place in a glass dish with a little water, cover with foil; place in the oven for about 45 mins. on 350. Perfect size for 1 a piece! Very tasty.

What are the pros? Perfect size
What are the cons? None
I didn?t grow this fruit, but a friend gave me one to taste. I split it in half and baked it at 400 with a little water and olive oil until tender. Then sprinkled some salt, pepper, and drizzled a little agave syrup (I have an extra sweet tooth). My opinion is that the fruit is a perfect serving size, with just the right texture, and has perfect moisture content. Not as wet as an Acorn, but not as dry as a Kabocha. I?m going to attempt to grow it next year!

What are the pros? Very tasty
What are the cons? Not as productive as I wanted
These were pretty easy to grow. I'd never grown winter squash before, and I managed to do pretty well with these guys. I ended up with only about 15 squash from 6 plants, which seems on the low end, but maybe I spaced them too close though, or didn't feed them enough or something.
I do plan to grow them next year. I might even even consider putting them on a trellis, since the fruit were pretty small (12-16oz) and didn't seem prone to breaking off. Even when ripe, they held pretty firm to the plant.
Lastly, I'm not sure if they mature early for winter squash, but it was earlier than I expected. Mine were ripening around July 10th through July 30th, not that I'm complaining.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, tasty
These grew well in my garden here in Western WA. However, when I looked online I read that these are normally less than half a pound. My first one weighed more than 1 1/2 pounds! Normally not a fan of winter squash, this one was great!
