What are the pros? Tasty! Lots of it!
What are the cons? Really takes over
I grew these back in the early 90's. After many years of searching for the original strain (several companies I found called theirs Tahitian Squash but they grew out to be butternuts), I found and purchased some seeds direct from Steve. I am so happy to see Baker Creek now carry them! Everyone I know that likes squash loves this one. Some of ours have gone over 30 pounds. Excellent texture and flavor and with that huge neck, its a lot of squash! The plants are huge and the vines are long. Not many pest issues in my area. Vine tends to set fruit later than our other squash and about the time I think they wont produce they push out a bumper crop. Seeds and seedlings are very cold sensitive and do better when started indoors. Seeds will rot if planted in cool soil. If you have the room for it this is well worth growing. Baked, stewed, even eaten raw (or dehydrated into squash chips) its all good!
