What are the pros? Amazing leaves, setting a lot
What are the cons? got knocked by everything
I did two successive plantings since I am in Hawaii with our endless planting season. Round one these guys started strong, but got powdery mildew and destroyed by vine borers/pickle worm. I planted a T shaped mega mound with a lot of water and manure one month later. The vines are encouraged to reroot every few feet as they are allowed to run down a long manure bed. Now we are talkin'! Leaves two feet across, over 3'high and fruit setting every 18" on these mega vines. Don't give up. This Italian just likes all the good things in life, sun, water, and a lot of food.
