What are the pros? tasty, few seeds, prolific
What are the cons? requires a lot of space
Can't say enough about this highly-productive, VERY LARGE plant! I planted three, and it nearly took over my garden. It looks beautiful climbing up my 8' trellis, and I love seeing the bright orange flowers every morning. The plant has been hugely prolific for us, and even here in drought-stricken Northern California, the leaves haven't wilted and the plant keeps producing. The plants are so prolific that I've had to distribute to friends, neighbors, passersby... some fruit have grown to 3' long and remain slender and straight if hanging from a trellis, and even these fruits aren't woody, with very firm flesh and few seeds. Some of the fruit I missed have grown to 3' long and about 5" in diameter; I let these sit for a while, and when cut into them saw that the flesh had turned orange. Looking forward to trying these out as winter squash later this season. The plants have also resisted powdery mildew much longer than the other winter/summer squash in my garden.
