What are the pros? Great fun to watch it grow
What are the cons? Took 2 people to lift one
This seed was a gift and to be polite I planted just 1. The package said it could reach 20# so I thought I was pretty safe. The vine raced all over the garden and into the goat pen and very quickly started putting out fruit...lots of huge, lumpy, first yellow, then dark orange fruit. The largest weighed #48 and the smallest at harvest was #28! Maturity was 'way after the county fair so none were entered. They are so large that I have to give them away sight unseen. They are pretty intimidating at first. I have not cut one up yet, but I know for a fact it won't fit in the oven and there'll be little room left in the freezer. I'm hoping it will taste good because there will be a lot to get rid of if it doesn't. I am an optimist.
