What are the pros? Grows easily, lasts to frost
What are the cons? Mildew but less than most
We got seeds 10 years ago in Quebec & figured it would do well here in cool coastal California. It has done well for us. The squash themselves are good zucchini, they grow well as most zucchini does here, and the plants last into cool weather hiding squashes beneath the leaves hanging down the edges of the raised beds - no other squash has done that for us. We ate Nimba fruit in December 2016 and have eaten them in December before. We get powdery mildew here when the cool weather arrives as it usually means we have dewy mornings, affecting a lot of plants including squash, but the Nimba squash re-grew leaves better than any other squash for us. We had also grown Costata Romanesca zuchini and Sibley winter squash last year which both died from the leaves being covered with powdery mildew.
