Easy to start seeds indoors and transplant in warmer weather. Grew very quickly once transplanted! I was able to harvest a few, and they were very delicious steamed. Very tender, buttery flavor!
Susceptible to squash vine borer (almost killed my plants). Plants were "cleaned" and began to sprout new growth. However, when temps reached 90+, they went dormant.
It is now late September with lower temps, and plants have begun to grow again. Unfortunately, I think that anything that sprouts may not have time to fully ripen before cold weather sets in.
Next year, I plan to sow the plants on the East side of my house where there is afternoon shade. Hopefully, this may keep them from going "dormant" during the hot summer temps.
