What are the pros? Looks, taste, high yield
What are the cons? Invasive but tolerable
I tried these just as an experiment and I am glad I did. They are slow starters. After transplanting, they did nothing for a few weeks until the weather really warmed up, then they took off! I found it helpful to grow them like pole beans, with plenty of garden twine for them to climb up. They produce MANY side shoots which will invade neighboring plants if you don't direct the growing tips back to where you want them. Very good producers and the taste is just what I expected. Crisp cucumber with a hint of lemon. Great in salads. I will try to pickle some at the end of the season.
