What are the pros? Resist vine bore, store, taste
What are the cons? Long vines, low # fruit
Gave up on summer squash d/t vine borers, these are very resistant. Planted late March along with Butternut and Seminole, 3 started plants each. Harvest 2 x 5 pounders in June, 2 more in July 8 pound Butternut, and 4 more 1 butternut so far in Aug (these are half the previous size/weight). Lots of vines compared to number of developed squash - 1 vine 50' long. Lost 1 of these and 1 Seminole d/t buried in vines/leaves, rot at stem end before realized attached to dead section of vine. More are growing on the vines.
I cut the bulb off, slice neck lengthwise, remove seeds and 'strings' from bulb, season neck and bulb with butter and variety of home grown herbs, wrap in aluminum foil, bake at 350 until tender (about 2 hours for large ones) then enjoy.
