What are the pros? Super cute, high yields
What are the cons? A little hard to get started
These are absolutely amazing. They were a little tough to get started, but once I got them to about 3 inches and into my raised bed, 2 out of the 3 plants I had 10 inches apart from each other, really blew up. The third plant was about a week and a half behind those, but it ended up prospering as well. Be careful with these though, they can grow several inches a day and have completely grown into and around my small fence in the raised garden, and into my tomatoe plants 3 feet away. I think they have spread over 6 feet wide and 6 feet tall, and are now tangling into themselves. I highly recommend a lattice that you can see from both sides. The tiny little cukes tend to hide behind the extremely cute Ivy like leaves. I have found they are best picked at the size of an oval dime or so, and they have a bright cucumber flavor. I'm obsessed with this plant, and I'm going to make a separate raised trough for the next year so I can plant at least 5-7 plants.
