What are the pros? Thrives
What are the cons? Space needed
As with the other reviews, this grows and strongly when other varieties of squashes all around die due to bugs or disease. Outstanding.
It does indeed take a lot of space though. Next year I will try pruning more and see if that works.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, delicious.
What are the cons? None
I ordered some Seminole Pumpkin seeds from Baker Creek Heirloom seeds and planted 4 plants this past spring. They did very well and were everything they were reported to be (insect resistant, disease resistant, heavy bearing, and delicious.). They averaged 15 - 18 fruits per plant. What was unusual was that each plant produced a different looking fruit from ones that looked like what was pictured at the site I ordered them from to some that were similar to butternut squash. And one plant produced fruits that looked similar to a Banana squash but strongly ribbed. Plants were identical; dark green with white blotches. No complaints here as they all did well and taste delicious. I highly recommend them. They were even resistant to the squash vine borers that always wipe out my other squashes. The vines grow about 60 ft. long so they need a lot of room. These squash can be used young for summer squash or used mature like butternut squash. I will be growing these every year now.

What are the pros? Prolific
What are the cons? Nothing
A friend started these from seed and gave me three plants, which I put in pots between the garden and the driveway since I can't grow squash due to borers. I put them out in June and forgot them. We left town for nearly 3 weeks in early July. When we came back, we had to pull the vines out from under our truck to get out of the driveway. We had to cut off vines that had grown out onto the lawn. The three plants rooted at nodes and took over the rest of the vegetable garden. We have harvested 124 squashes off those three plants so far! There are many more out there that have not yet turned golden. In reading a previous review, I see that you can also eat them when they are green, so I guess I'll go out and get 30 or so more tomorrow. The golden ones are hard. I put them in the microwave (whole) for a couple of minutes to soften them up. Then I cut them in half, remove the seeds, and either bake them or peel them and cut the flesh into bite-sized pieces for stir-frying. Delicious!

What are the pros? Easy to grow
What are the cons? Long time to maturity
I've always had trouble with squash plants in our area due to insects, heat and humidity. This plant took over the garden. Very vigorous growth and

What are the pros? Pest resistance, feistiness
This is hands-down the best thing I have ever grown. Growing in southern Maryland, we got 7 pumpkins from a single vine despite heavy insect traffic. Borers took out our Winter Luxury pumpkin immediately, and our butternut battled against squash bugs and powdery mildew and lost. The Seminole pumpkin, as much as I fretted about it, really just seemed to enjoy itself. I uprooted the vine as it grew, so I'm sure it would have been even more vigorous if I'd just left it to it's own devices--it definitely knows how to take care of it self--but borers ignored it. No sign of powdery mildew despite sharing a bed with and even touching affected leaves of other varieties. I could not stay ahead of the squash bugs despite daily picking, but Seminole didn't care. We accidentally left the drip line on it for 12 hours straight, and I thought for sure we'd killed it--nope, it was thrilled with the extra water. We will dig up every available corner of our yard and give Seminole free reign next year.
