What are the pros? Healthy plant, lots of fruit
What are the cons? Taste, size
I grew these just because I wanted to. I planted it in a raised bed that we filled with leaf mulch and compost for an entire year, so to say this plant did well is an understatement. 6’ tall and easily 7’ wide. The leaves were the size of my torso (5’11” bodybuilder), and had 4-5 DOZEN fruit on it at its peak. However, I could NOT find a way to make the fruit less sour. It’s easily as sour as a lemon but has a very delicious taste that’s almost like ice cream. I tried boiling them in honey, blending them with berries, and I could not get rid of that coying sourness. Overall, still an amazing plant that survived temps into the upper 30s with no damage. If only I could find a use for them. They also have a layer of powder on them that’s hard to get off
