What are the pros? pest resistant
What are the cons? fruit too large
In a year with way too much rain and pests, this squash never missed a beat. Undisturbed by squash bugs, SVB, pickleworm or the diseases those pests bring. A vigorous climber with very large leaves, sturdy stems capable of holding up the large fruit even while dangling and a thirst for the sun. On one plant, I got vines in excess of 25 feet long which perched on the top of my fence. That same plant produced 5 squash, most in the 15 pound range but the largest was 43 pounds. A visiting workman who was a former farmer in Jamaica looked at it and called it a "Jamaican pumpkin," so this may be a related variety.
