What are the pros? Unique taste, unlike anything
What are the cons? some difficulty germinating
The worst part is getting these to germinate. I had the best luck not burying the seeds at all and just letting a heavy watering pull them into the soil. When I tried to bury them like a tomato seed I had absolutely no luck getting them to germinate. I had about 6 plants from my initial efforts. You want to wet the soil really well and transplant them with extreme care, they do not like their roots disturbed at all! Once you get them in the soil and perked back up you are in for a treat. These grow amazingly well once established, just like a weed and there is no end to their expansion! They had a 10' foot span before they showed any signs of slowing down and 4 plants produced more ground cherries than I could eat. Don't waste good soil or prime space on these guys, they'll grow in any soil you have available and will outgrow any pest that gets to them. The plants themselves have a heavenly sweet scent when you brush against them and fruit is tasty
