What are the pros? germinates very easy
What are the cons? whitefly & take long to ripen
The fruit took months to ripen, so you have to be very patient. I basically had to forget about the plant for a weeks once the fruit appeared. I gave one to my mom, and she said it was the worst tasting thing she's EVER eaten. I didn't think it was that bad; just very tart. A week later I gave her one that was ripe, and after being chilled in the frig. She was so surprised at the difference, but still not sure if she liked it or not. My own opinion is that it's like taking all the sweetness and flavor of a honeydew and cantelop, then condensing that down to the size of a grape with a crunchy skin. It's a burst of strong flavor and sweetness. The only difference between unripe and ripe is that there's a slightly darker pigment and contrast in the stripes. The plant is highly acceptable to whitefly and root knot nematodes, and it was a bit invasive in my square foot bed. Next time I will try it in a hanging pot.
