What are the pros? healthy plants
What are the cons? none
I ordered these seeds primarily because I thought they would be a bit of a conversation piece in our community garden - and they were! I planted yellow crookneck, cocozella, and black zucchini and the custard squash were the only plants that didn't succumb to a garden-wide, late-season squash bug infestation.
For steaming, suggest picking when the fruit is pale-to-lemon yellow as it toughens up as it matures. However, we really enjoyed the older (orange) squash in soups, as the flavor is richer.
the June-planted crop kept producing through to late August here in the Midwest, long after the zucchini had petered out.
