What are the pros? Great edible showpiece!
What are the cons? Stem has sharp prickers.
This plant has lots of surprises, besides the edible pods. You can let the plants go to maturity and save seeds for next year. Bees love the light lavender flowers. But the big surprise comes when you dig up a large mature plant. It has a huge root a lot like a daikon radish. Wash off and peel. It has a nice radish flavor, milder than ordinary radishes!
