What are the pros? Vigorous plants, good flavor
What are the cons? Slower to mature
This is one of my favorite pumpkin type squash because it makes large, uniform pumpkins that are good for carving or decorating, but also a lot tastier than most pumpkins. Vines are vigorous and had no issues with disease or pests, and this is in a very wet garden where some of the other varieties of squash did get mildew. Yield was one to two large pumpkins per plant. However only about half were fully ripe by the end of the season (in Wisconsin, planted early June). The underripe ones still kept ok, but the flavor did not compare to the more fully ripe ones. When fully ripe the skin is deep buff color and the flesh is extremely bright orange, and flavor is very sweet.
