What are the cons?


In my zone 9 So. Cal garden, I usually plant winter squashes in May--so that's when I sowed Queensland Blue last spring. QB was very vigorous and productive in the early summer , but by July when the temps were in the 80s it was wilting all day and perking up again at night. By the end of that month the temps got into the 90s and several of my developing squashes aborted. No amount of watering could save them. Only two survived out of about 14 on 3 vines. But those two were delicious, excellent keepers-one is still storing on my kitchen cabinet in the following May.If I try QB again, I will sow the seeds around April 1st so that more of the squashes have a chance to make it to harvest time.
