What are the pros? unique, pretty, mild flavor
What are the cons? didn't keep long on shelf
OK, I usually don't like eating squash, but I wanted to grow this one last year since its so pretty. I grew it in an underground greenhouse, at the time the greenhouse had no roof. I planted way too many plants and they overtook a large chunk of the garden, and produced more squash than I knew what to do with! They taste great, I can actually say this is my favorite squash! Some of the squash got very large and I picked them whenever I wanted at any stage. Just don't leave them on the vine way too long or the inside will be yellow and mealy when baked. I baked countless numbers of these squash in the oven, pureed them, and used them in pies. They are really great for pie, I like that they don't have a strong flavor so you can add whatever flavor you want to the pie. I made vanilla pies, the taste and texture is reminiscent of buttermilk pie. They are also good picked young and stir fried, and I even pickled some.
