What are the pros?

What are the cons?


These grew very well during a ridiculously (and record breaking) hot and dry summer in the Sierra Nevada Foothills in Northern California. Reasonable sized fruits (3-5 lbs) were not as blue or shiny as the picture, but well worth the space. I harvested some early, when the plants were still green but the shells were hard, and they are storing well, so far, and the vines set a second crop. These plants were less bothered by the aphids than the butternuts and kabochas. The best feature is the flavor - you can't beat it. Dense flesh and very few seeds compared to many others. The seeds are a bit too fibrous to make good eating, though.
