What are the pros? Heat, rain & drought tolerant
What are the cons? None, grew very well in 9B
Direct sowed Janosik in raised bed w/ Long Island Cheese pumpkins. We trellised both on tent styled cattle panels to keep them elevated, air circulating around the plants and off the soil so as to avoid infestations. 75% direct sun, 25% shade. Both did well. The Janosik tolerated the unbearable heat of west central FL, 9B, extremely well. At times temps reached in excess of 100. We went from non-stop rain for days/ weeks to no rain. The vines set several fruit. While the heat did knock out a number of babies, those that survived were in good form. Premature harvest owing to worms boring skins. Good flavor, delicate almost floral-like. Flavor would likely develop if left on vine longer. No soil amendments, no fertilizer, no pesticide. Lots of love. Good growers! Yes, a lot of seeds, small ones. We counted 130 seeds in one 8 lb-er. Seeds were concentrated in lines & easily cut out. Kids ate them, unbothered. Longer to mature than stated. No rot. A lil' difficult to tell when fully ripe.
