What are the pros? Grows well, looks amazing
What are the cons? Takes a while to ripen
I harvested these today as I had planted later in spring and they hadn't all quite ripened up before the cold weather caused the vines to die. They look fantastic, they smell earthy, and the ripest ones (while no larger than a normal cucumber) weighed a hefty pound each. The taste is interesting as well - best I can describe it is that bit of watermelon between the super sweet color and the sour white rind, where it's very juicy and somewhat sweet but not overpowering. (Sort of like Jicama.) I really like it! Will be planting again for sure next year, only earlier.
