What are the pros? Likes clay, hea,t a little H2O
What are the cons? Do not fertilize.
Start 6 weeks before last frost and treat like tomato. Don't pick just because it is red and the calyx has turned back, wait until it comes off easy with a light twist with thumb and index finger. The taste is unique and at best has the hint of a black cherry flavor. I eat two or three dozen per day. Bumble bees love the flowers. They are also useful for taking potato beetles away from potatoes. A wonderful plant with excellent fruit right off the vine in late pm.
