What are the pros? Squash color isn't bad

What are the cons? Incredibly low yield

Review:

Disappointing. Despite planting in manure amended soil and several rounds of fish emulsion throughout the season vines stayed very small, grew no more than 18" or so. Produced a reasonable number of blossoms, but fruit just didn't seem to set. Other squash & veggies I grew set fruit just fine, so I don't think it was a pollinator issue. I'd read reviews about how prolific this variety was so I only grew 3 vines, not wanting to overwhelm my pantry. Coming into harvest, I have exactly 3 softball-sized squash. I may change my mind if the flavor is incredible, but yield this low is a strong negative.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? No
