What are the pros? Flavor and appearance
What are the cons? Disease!
I started these in March in South Louisiana. Our early spring on average is fairly warm with a few cold spells. Several people stopped to tell me I was planting too early. These plants were immediately prolific! By April I was knocking on doors trying to give away! Beautiful and tasty cucumbers- I drank a lot of cucumber lime-aides in this period and put a lot of juice in freezer! However, by May/June all my dragon egg plants had diseases (only plant in my extensive garden to suffer with disease). Tried a few solutions but nothing helped; pulled up plants early. I think these plants liked our cooler spring climate than a hot and humid S Louisiana summer. Glad I planted early and got a great crop, but probably won’t grow again.
