What are the pros? Very vigorous, and hearty
What are the cons? A bit tough to get started
Had a hard time getting the seeds to start and get growing, out of a whole pack of seeds planted I had maybe just shy of one quarter begin to grow. But, the result was okay in the end. The few surviving plants really took off and produced more pumpkins than I had anticipated. They withstood a bit of harsh weather and a few intervals of heavy rain and wetness. Didn't have a single one succumb to rot. Upon harvest, I even discovered several completely hidden among thick grass around the edge of my patch. They had matured and were absolutely fine. A pleasant surprise as other varieties that I've had this happen to usually are pulled out and are bad. Due to space I had to plant a zucchini nearby, none of them suffered cross pollination. I've had that problem in the past with other varieties as well. Overall, well worth a little struggle. The taste is mild, nutty, and pinch sweet.
