Review:

I finally discovered that these do NOT vine/climb so trellising doesn't help. The plants grow similarly to soybeans in that regard. Plant several weeks after winter frost. I found that these are far less cold hardy than corn or tomatoes. Even when they did come up, they sat stagnant until mid June-early July (last frost was early May this year). This summer has been incredibly hot (avg mid 90s) but they are loving it and doing great. They don't seem to be bothered with our terrible bindweed infestation or a rogue squash vine which invaded their space.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
