What are the pros? Grows well, great taste
What are the cons? summer, its too hot.
I purchased these seeds and then got some free with another order. I started the seeds indoors in my farm lab on April 1 and they quickly began germinating after 4 days with an overall 94%germination rate. They were transplanted to the outdoor garden lab area on May 14 and were on average 14"-18" tall. I have used 6' bamboo canes to stake them up and thinned as the dominant plant became obvious. The indeterminate vines have been trimmed "green house style" with the bottom leaves removed and all suckers removed to encourage single stem vertical growth. Today is June 4 and the vines have grown to an average of 35" and each plant holding on average 5 good sized fruits that have not yet ripened. I have used an organic program of organic compost soil, organic fertilizers, ground egg shells and compost tea spray/drench and observed no pest infestation or bacterial/viral infection at this time. This seems to be a very sturdy and hardy variety, prolific producer.
