What are the cons?


Being a farmer stuck in the city, I turned to raised beds and vertical gardening in 2011. This squash is perfect for this type of gardening. I planted a 12' row of Sweet Dumpling and grew them up 5' of small gauge rope netting behind my tomatoes. I picked 24 squash from the 6-8 vines that made it to maturity and could've had 6-10 more except I lost some during the training of the vigorous jungle grade vines. The fruit was the best tasting squash I've ever had and they were great keepers. I still have one in storage that my wife and I will fight over when it's made. My yard was on a landscaping showcase tour and those crazy squash vines tumbling over the trellis drew more attention than anything else.
