What are the pros? Very stubborn and hardy!
What are the cons? Fall's asleep during winter!
I had planted a few seeds on a lark back in 2012, They never produced all that well, but lo and behold, they survived the winter here where I live! I had all the ones that were planted actually come back after it warmed up, 2012 into 2013 we had a repeated warm up and freeze, bad enough it killed stuff that normally overwintered fine. Expecting them to go to seed was a bit... of a case of jumping the gun. My plant's went absolutely nuts, the biggest leaves I let grow to full size (before they actually started to wither and die off, most broke their stalks from sheer weight!) were the largest any of my neighbors had seen in their life. Any 'store bought' was like a candle next to a flamethrower. This is a very reliable breed, and great flavor, regardless of how large you let it grow before cutting leaves for use. And in my case, the "trunks" were probably around four inches wide side to side!
