What are the pros? Plant and let grow
What are the cons? Goes crazy
Split seeds with my cousin and she picked this out. I was expecting a traditional zucchini type fruit (due to the name) but much to my surprise these monster squash were born and then as some of them sat on the vine the skin turned a soft fleshy orange (like butternut squash). I just thought that she miss labeled them but she didn't cause here they are. They can be eaten green or fleshy orange. Their "counter" life is a long time. They may weep a little out of their stem but my parents have had one on their counter for months and it just got more orange and is still firm. The flavor is a mild butternut squash. Great sauteed with butter and onions. And my neighbors made soup out of some that was really good. The neck is fairly uniformed all the way down to the "seed belly", as I call it. Makes for easy meals. If your feeling lazy just peel and cut the neck and and compost the whole "seed belly". I even spiralized this and sauted it. It got mushy so probably better baked like this.
