What are the pros? Very tasty, decent producer
What are the cons? Borers, poor germination
Loved these little guys. A little physics: A sphere has the highest volume:surface area ratio. One little squash actually has a lot to it, and can easily fill a pan! The flavor is exquisite, and these were easily our favorite squash in the garden this year.
Some downsides. The borers also like them, though that's not really a surprise. I had really poor germination as well. 100% with all my other squash varieties, but less than 50% (probably ~30%) for this one. They're also rather average producers for the size of the plants, but not poor by any stretch. Don't be turned off by the negative aspects though...they are well worth it.
