What are the pros? Easy, interesting, no bugs
What are the cons? Slow maturity, taste
I started 2 seeds indoors, transplanted them, and as the summer sun set in, they took off! The vines are extremely vigorous; I had a difficult time controlling them. Trellis them for sure. We tried the fruit when green, tastes just like a cucumber. When they ripened to orange, we tasted again. I was not that impressed. They are so fun, though! I love telling people about them. It is also the end of October and there are still fruits on the vines. I'm using some of them in my Halloween decorations. Unlike other cucurbits, we had ZERO bug problems, so that was awesome. I think they would make a great barrier plant for predation. I would recommend solely based on the fact that they look so cool lol Also, if you enjoy cucumbers, don't mind seeds, and don't want insects eating your crop, these are for you but WEAR GLOVES
