What are the pros? Interesting flavor, fragrance
What are the cons? Hard to start
Man were these hard to get started. Germination was pretty easy, but time after time, each plant failed to thrive and take off. It seems the seedlings are extremely sensitive to Miracle Gro All-Purpose Water Soluble fertilizer, most likely due to the high ammoniacal nitrogen and urea content. My one and only plant that made it was slowly and carefully babied along on captured rain water and no fertilizers until after seeing it put up it's first leaf triplet or two. Then I stuck it in hydroponics and it finally took off.
Berries are fruity smelling when ripe, and they pop off of the plant easily when pushing from behind the calyx. The berry has a rather creamy texture that seems to melt in your mouth. You probably wouldn't need to make jam out of these, just squish the raw berries into your toast, they're that soft. As others mentioned, the flavor is reminiscent of pineapple or some other tropical fruit, not at all like normal strawberries aside from appearance. Small, but numerous.
