What are the pros? Good early fruits, large plant
What are the cons? bit insipid as winter squash
Really enjoyed seeing the plants take off and cover the compost heap where I planted to give plenty of nutrients. I figured since pumpkins have done well as volunteers there that this squash would too, and this one did. Two plants covered the heap and would have covered my SUV, too, if the carport hadn't shaded too much. The blossoms were beautiful and the young fruits a bit firm, but tasty summer squash. Some of the winter squash have been rather insipid (more like summer squash flavor) when roasted, and there's little flesh in the seedy bulb end. Overall, though, great to have a squash that copes with mildew and borers and gave me homegrown fruits. Recommend to use for serving with tomatoes, garlic, and onion similar to ratatouille.
