What are the pros? plentiful, novel in recipes
What are the cons? hard outer layer
I grew these to hybridize with another squash to create new cultivars. That is my hobby. I do not try to create noodles. I will use them as a substitute for winter squash in recipes. The novelty of these things in a pumpkin recipe is better than spaghetti noodles. They're a poor substitute for spaghetti.. These were just as I expected however. They taste like those in grocery stores but most are in more varying sizes. I planted 8 cultivars and these are my 2nd or 3th favorite in productivity. I am still seeing fruit on them in October. So the productivity is actually good. The extended time seems to make them a bonus. I planted in May. Remember this is Mississippi. Most are a good size for an individual to eat in 1 meal. Some might be large for a meal. I have enjoyed eating them. I am used to eating summer squash with tender skin. These definitely do not have a tender skin, but they are good. I prefer Delicata over these. Delicata has an edible skin. These not as plentiful as zucchinis
