What are the pros? Yummy, unique, worth it
What are the cons? Vulnerable to Vine Borer
This old south bariety makes a splash on any dinner table. I was able to grow a total of four fruits but one fruit I let go and I ended up winning longest squash at a local event we had. The fruit can get massively long. Roasted it off in half moons for Thankgiving with my favorite spices and brown sugar and people couldnt get enough as they stripped the flesh from the skin and ate it like a watermelon.....its that good. Good substitute for pumpkin in pies and sweet potatoes in casseroles....they are that good.
Rare variety, definitely undergoing species isolation(the first step to extinction and loss of genetic diversity.)
Gardeners need to grow these kinds of varieties so future generations can have them.
