What are the pros? Easy, delicious, beautiful
What are the cons? None
2015 was the first year I grew this squash in my zone 8 rainy climate. I was apprehensive as I had read mixed reviews. I found it easy to germinate indoors in seed starter. I transplanted outdoors in May to a highly organic hugelculture garden deeply mulched. These plants had the option of extending toward long hours of sun one way or under the near complete shade of a fruit tree the other way. They all chose the shade and climbed high up in to the tree. Fruit were huge and beautiful. I harvested in early autumn in with fair yields (3-4 large fruit per plant). The fruit is light, buttery, and sweet. I will definitely be growing them again this year.
