What are the pros? Attractive, round fruit
What are the cons? Relatively small fruit
I planted these indoors in early March and planted them in raised beds in late April. The soil temperature was probably still too low, because they didn't do anything until June - but once the vines started producing, they really produced! Pros: the round fruit are great for cutting in half & stuffing; the flavor is similar to fruit from more "standard" bitter melon varieties. Cons: since they're small and round, the melons hide behind other vines! I had to be a little vigilant to pick them so they wouldn't go over-ripe and burst open. Also, some of my melons started ripening when they were fairly small, so I definitely needed to pick them all before they got to >3".
