What are the pros? Everything
What are the cons? nothing to dislike
I planted these and a pickling variety named Double Yield this year. The Beit Alpha vines are easier to manage, seem to be setting more female blossoms and can be used for anything at any size. Next year I'm only growing these for both pickles and fresh eating. No spines, no tough skin, no bitterness. What's not to love?
