What are the pros? Very cool looking, good taste,
What are the cons? Vine Borers LOVE them
These little guys don't look like much when they start growing but once they get their feet under them good they are off to the races. I had 2 plants that I set on a 3x3 raised bed with a 7 foot tall "Tee Pee" Trellis. Well they covered that in a few weeks and it was impossible to see into the middle of it so it has been hard to pick the fruits. Mine are setting tons of them ad I find the easiest way to harvest has been to shake the trellis and then reach in on the ground underneath and rake in all the fruits. They taste like watermelon close to the rind to me. I will grow again but on an arched trellis that I can access under easier.
