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.

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!

your squash crossed with some squash nearby, sweet dumpling is stable so it will not "revert"back to anything. check to see what other squashes you or someone nearby may have been growing. if the long squash is any good, you might want to try to stabilize it to create a new variety, it would take a while but it might be worth it.

We ran across Sweet Dumpling seeds a few years ago and were delighted by the sweet, dry fruit. These squash don't take up much garden space as the vines climb our fence. It's the earliest winter squash to ripen in our northeastern PA garden and I learned not to hoard them by losing a few to spoilage in mid-winter. This year I planted saved seeds and was surprised when most of the vines produced large, long white ribbed squash. Can anyone tell me the parentage to which my seeds might have reverted?
