What are the pros? Fast, Prolific, Delicous
What are the cons? Need to be staked
Grows well in the Pacific Northwest, even in my limited sunlight garden. The bees go crazy for it. The flowers do taste almost exactly like cucumber with no burpy repercussions! The leaves are good too until they get too hairy, at which time I used them in smoothies to add the cool cucumber flavor. They do get large and then mine fell over. I ended up supporting them with tomato cages turned upside down since I didn't know this would be an issue. Next time, I'll stake them properly when they are small. Where has this gem been all my life?
