What are the pros? Delicious, huge plants
What are the cons? Long time to maturity
The first year I started these indoors and I lost them all in the transplant. I don't blame the seed, I put them out and the weather turned on me. The second year I did the same thing, using a different starter soil, and I finally got one growing outside. I only planted one plant because I had my doubts on if I was going to like the fruit or not. This plant was huge and loaded with berries. Unfortunately it did not ripen in time and when I pulled it to put it in the compost pile, we found a couple ripe berries to try. They were absolutely delicious. Sweet and tart, very different. I will try much harder to get these going indoors so I can get a crop off of them next year. If I had another two weeks I think I could have had a crop. The one plant had around two ice cream buckets full of berries that were around 1.5" and was over 3' tall and equally as wide - they need room to grow.
