What are the pros? No insect problems, beautiful
What are the cons? None, but give it room!
My one plant in 2015 was so productive I ran out of friends to give it to. It made female flowers as long as I kept it picked, but once in a while the female flower production slowed down and flowers were suddenly mostly male till I picked the hidden fruit that had grown beyond harvest size. Within a few days it reverted to female flowers again. I grew it near the garden entrance, having failed to read the fine print about its having a vining habit, but in the future it will get its own universe where it can grow up the fence. The taste is as described, complex and much better than any zucchini. The texture is interesting, too, never mushy, stays firm - and the seeds in older ones the size of a cantalope have an interesting chewy mouthfeel that we loved. By late fall a dozen or more got too big to cook as summer squash so I let them fill out and harden. These turned bright orange and sat outside all winter, and now in July a year later still look like October pumpkins, but weightless.
