What are the pros? Super easy to grow.
What are the cons? none
I like this plant. Very easy to grow. I started a little late but seemed to grow pretty rapidly. Berries are no too tasty. Mildly sweet. I started my seeds in toilet paper tubes. Fill half way with potting soil, drop in seed and cover lightly. Water lightly. Likes sun indirectly and directly. See when you plant this plant you can plant the whole tube. Toilet tubes are safe to plant. The whole thing just biodegradable.

What are the pros? Tasty and easy!
What are the cons? Toxic when green
I bought these on a whim and I'm glad that I did. They were super easy to grow- I winter sowed them in a milk jug. The fruit tastes like a sweet citrus. Almost like an orange.

What are the pros? Hardy plant
What are the cons? Needs heavy mulching
I have grown this 2 years in a row now. First year was not so good, I planted the seedlings in a bad spot and the plants did not do well.
This year I planted them both in a container (3 plants) and a Raised bed (3 Plants).
While the Container did produce they were not so big but sweet. They did required a lot of Fertilizer and water. I fixed the Watering issue by mulching heavily, here in Bullhead AZ we reached 80's and low 90's by March this year.
The raised bed got full direct Sun, and watering was not a problem as I mulched that raised bed good with dried grass. The raised bed berries are by far plumper and sweetest, might get bigger berries if I use Gibberellic acid on them?
I love the mild taste of the berries and the purple coloring is awesome.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, proliferates
What are the cons? Taste
My husband loves them, but I can't even think about them without puckering up! Lots and lots of volunteer sprouts (even years after I planted them), and they did well in hot sun. Fun growing.

What are the pros? Delicious
What are the cons? time consuming to pick
My family loves these. I planted them last year and saved my seeds but didn't get them planted in time this year. But to my surprise a ton of them came up on their own. We eat them as soon as we pick them because they are so good.
