What are the pros? taste, abundance of fruit,
What are the cons? Squash bore bugs love them!
Here in central Texas, they are prolific growers, they seem to grow feet overnight and have such an abundance of fruit! One plant so far has had over 15 squash, it's amazing! I am actually running out of space for them to grow as I did not anticipate for them to grow as much. The fruit is awesome, mashed, eaten raw, baked, BBQd, anyways, a little similar to sweet potatoes. My only issue with these is the squash bore bugs! I lost 2 plants to them as I they had too many in them. I tried many things, diatomaceous earth, finding them and killing them every 1-2 days, spices such as chilli pepper, cracked egg shells, wrapping the base in aluminum foil - but those pesky bugs dug through it. I finally found something that works, BT spray. Not sure if it worked, or they were just at the end of their life cycle.
