What are the pros? Easy to grow, lots of leaves
What are the cons? Few pods, strangles tomatoes
We are just north of San Antonio in S. Texas. We grow these all season, germination (generally good) is started inside because the birds will eat seedlings, with the vines sometimes wintering over. I did have one surprise vine this year. We eat the leaves like spinach, we have gotten pods a few times - we have to be quicker than the squirrels. The pods are sweet and nutty, but we never got any fruit until winter. We likely won't get pods this year, because I have to plant them again - Son1 ripped out the vine thinking it was a weed. Needless to say, we are having bean leaf salad with dinner!
