What are the pros? Beautiful, vigorous, flavor
What are the cons? needs space for few fruits
I love Sweetmeat squash and grew this Near Coos Bay Oregon in the 70's and again in the Puget Sound area of Seattle. I love the beautiful slate blue-green color and the random nature of the growth. Like pumpkin, one seems to think of the vine as creature scrambling where it will. I grew this in my plant nursery in Seattle and it grew over the fence, dropping squash on the pedestrian side and scrambling down a rockery where it plopped squash between boulders to the delight of customers, especially children. The squash is huge, is excellent baked, steamed, canned, in pies or soups. It always matured for me in the maritime Pacific Northwest. I wish there were more fruits to the vine but because Sweetmeat is large, there is plenty for the fall and winter larder. I store it in an unheated basement.
