What are the pros? prolific, large tasty fruits
What are the cons? doesn't store as well as some
Since we live in NE GA, we wanted to give these a try. Boy, did they take off! A very wet summer, and these soon took over the neighboring raised beds, the isles and the fence, requiring pruning back numerous times. Planted 4 vines and harvested a wheelbarrow full despite a lot of squash bugs in the garden. The matured faster than expected, so will start a bit later next time (I want in Sept/Oct, not early August. Delicious roasted (but don't overcook as they will go bitter). Great for pies, very sweet and unusual looking. Want to try these at a farmer's market next year. Only drawback was they were a bit invasive ( a corner of my garden looked like kudzu took over) and didn't store as long as some winter squashes (we still have waltham butternuts a year later, but these didn't make it past the holidays). If you enjoy unusual squashes, this is definitely worth a try.
