What are the pros? Fast growth, good squash
What are the cons? Thorns
I'm in zone 9 and I direct seeded on the 10th of April. Yesterday I harvested my first squash and I can't wait for more! I removed from the vines around the size of a softball. While the seeds were well developed at this size the whole thing is very tasty. I cooked it without oil or seasoning to get the true flavor and my goodness was it good. I can't wait to have more and it's a good thing because there are around 10 that will be ripe in the next week or 2 with more showing up every day. I do have 4 plants so that boosts production. This vining squash will be a favorite I imagine. Currently the vines are at least 5 feet in length and I have it growing on cattle panel. Do be careful if the thorns on this thing, but it's worth having to wear gloves for.
