What are the pros? prolific, good flavor/texture
What are the cons? can get out of control
As another reviewer mentioned, this vine is anything but compact. Unlike zucchini and crook neck which stay almost bush-like until near the end of the season, this plant truly vined all over my garden. I planted three vines on one end of one of my raised beds (they're about 20' long). Thankfully, the other end had onions which were ready to be harvested by the time the squash vines started encroaching on their space. My garden is pretty big and was able to mostly accommodate these vines, but they were still pretty crazy. However, they produced a very generous harvest, so I guess I can't complain. Sure, a plentiful zucchini harvest is pretty cliche, but these vines were incredibly prolific. They stayed pretty tender even if I accidentally let them grow bigger than I should have. The vines got mildewy, but that's par for the course in my garden. I'll plant these again, but will probably just have one plant so I can keep up with it.
