What are the pros? Hardinefss
What are the cons? Unsure
I harvested the first fruit on September 1st. It may have been too soon. I haven't cooked it yet, I am just saving it for now. The fruit is still green but turning orange, not brown. It weighs 2 lbs. 10 oz. better than expected 1-2 lb. but I'm still not sure it is mature yet. I want to save the seed but I'm unsure about the maturity.
No problem, there is more out there in the garden, but should I wait until all the green is gone on the others before I harvest? I'm unsure.
I planted 3 inch starts and then abused them by not watering regularly and of course the deer stomped on the vines. But they are hardy and survived the abuse and are still growing.
I did not have any problem with bugs or disease, just beautiful productive plants. I don't even care if I get to eat any, I just enjoyed growing them in my garden and the bees loved them too!.
