What are the pros? Unusual appearance, tasty
What are the cons? Ever-so-slightly stringy
We grew these last year in a relatively small-sized garden in Southern California, and while they were not as vigorous as our Black Futsu Squash, we did get several lovely squash (despite growing it in a fairly modest container).
They were the tastiest variety we've grown - the texture was a little bit stringier than our Black Futsu or Kabocha, but the flavor more than made up for it.
Perhaps it was due to growing it in a container, but the plant struggled under full sun - only began setting fruit and vining vigorously when moved to partial shade.
If we had just a little bit more land, we'd grow these every year.
