What are the pros? Attractive plant; fun to grow
What are the cons? slow maturity; no fruit
These are pretty cool plants. I studied up on them a lot before I got the seeds. So, I know my experience isn't everyone's, and they are supposed to taste pretty awesome.
I started these indoors super early. Unfortunately, not early enough, and I crowded the plants (so that probably delayed the maturity, too).
I planted them outdoors, probably with too much potassium and calcium and not enough phosphorus and nitrogen (and probably not enough magnesium either). I did give them basalt rockdust, worm castings, rock phosphate, potassium sulfate and maybe other stuff at planting time, however.
Anyway, they grew leaves super slowly, and they didn't flower. So, I think they needed a lot more nitrogen (for growth), and phosphorus (for maturity and flowering). They had plenty of potassium and calcium (probably too much).
It was a really hot year, too. So, that may have had something to do with it. The soil was clay-loam.
