What are the pros? Flavor, flavor, flavor
What are the cons? Huge vines, squash bugs
I grew this not realizing just how large the vines were! They absolutely took over my small kitchen garden space. I did trellis, but not tall/long enough. If you can handle that (and checking for the squash bugs which seem to be attracted to this variety,) you will love the taste! I did not grow for use as a summer squash. I use it for my prize holiday pumpkin pies - the texture is so smooth. I did get five LONG squash, every morsel melt-in-your-mouth delicious! Not a large seed cavity, either. Not a storage squash, but in a cold back room, one squash lasted until the end of January (harvested in mid October.) I keep this seed and grow out periodically. One day, perhaps someone will select for shorter vines! It eventually succumbed to powdery mildew.
