What are the pros? Excellent taste

What are the cons? Really huge bushes!!


The flavor is just great fried, grilled or breaded or stewed for us. Holds shape well when cooked, this one runs neck to neck as a fav to the old fashioned watry summer squash. Not quite as quick to start sizing up seeds in the fruits, and a tad bit drier than yellow crook necks. We pick our summer squashes small, though some can "get away" on you from time to time as this is a REALLY large bush, about 5 feet side to side and almost that tall for us. No diseases noted, vigorous growth and yes, itchy leaves but worth the space and itchiness. Ours did not climb or even ramble as another reviewer said theirs did, nor were the squash stringy, ours were meltingly tender and tasty/ Did well in Texas heat, ours got a bit of shade late afternoons, and plenty of water. Our leaves looked as big as those elephant ear plants!! Will grow again and again. About as productive as the yellow crooknecks ( the old fashioned very warty ones that we also grow). The blossoms are quite large, too.
