What are the pros? Productive, Pest resistant
What are the cons? Takes over the world
I'm in Zone 8b and grew this squash for the first time this year. It is hugely productive with vines that take over the world and fruits that can reach 10 pounds. Since it is a winter squash it will store well as most other reviewers have mentioned. While my favorite winter squash so far is Delicata, I'm looking forward to tasting Hopi Pale Grey--I just hopi (sorry, couldn't resist) its flavor is as good as others have reported. I'm looking forward to baking it with butter and brown sugar.
I do not recommend planting this squash with beans and corn as part of a three sisters planting. It is so aggressive and vigorous it choked out my beans. Didn't bother the corn at all, though. I'll go back to Zucchini or cantaloupe as the third member of the three sisters next year. In spite of that "flaw" Hopi Pale Grey is so productive I'll definitely grow it again next year. It's a keeper.
