What are the pros? delicious, pretty fruit
What are the cons? low yield
I planted three seeds and all three germinated. The plants were large and healthy with lots of blossoms, male and female. One plant yielded maybe four or five mature fruit; the other two plants yielded none. I did have problems with squash bugs and vine borers; I'd love to be the reviewer who said that his or her plants "laughed off" these pests! I also saw very few pollinators and ended up trying to hand-pollinate whenever I could, but the female blossoms were tucked deep into the plant and were a little difficult to reach; when I could reach them, often they didn't open before the fruit just dropped off. The flavor of the squash I did get, however, was excellent. I'll try these again, either growing them under row covers or planting them later in the season or, probably. both.
