What are the pros? Ripe fruits taste fantastic!
What are the cons? Long time to get the fruits.
These are not particularly difficult to get started, but then you wait a long time for them to do anything except grow, and grow, and GROW. Mine climbed to the top of two nearby trees before finally putting out fruits. Once started though, the fruits grew large fairly quickly. Unfortunately, I started them too late to get a lot of ripe ones, but those that did ripen were wonderful. The flesh is rather liquid, but excellent flavor -- a lot like limes and bananas with a hint of something else (exotic, sweet). Makes great juice and the husks are so interesting, I dried some of them to make into little bowls. They didn't last long, but I'm working on that. ;) I suggest starting these indoors very early unless you live in the deep south.
