What are the pros? Low maintenance, unique color.
What are the cons? Dry texture, not super sweet.
Planted three slips in late May, dug mid October. We have loamy clay soil. Basically did nothing - let the rain water them. We had a drought through June but that didn't seem to bother them much. They grew to a 12 foot radius around where we planted the slips, which was fine, because they shaded out any weeds. Yielded about 20 pounds of tubers, up to 12 inches long and 3-4 inches thick. In one area, a runner had rooted and made small but usable tubers. Don't overcook because kind of dry. Not super sweet, but good as a soup, or I imagine any type of casserole type application. The color is unbelievable. Will be trying again next year.
