What are the pros? Easy to grow, and attractive.
What are the cons? Flavor like dirt.
So I planted these out in the spring in a raised bed with a trellis. The package said there was a low germination rate, so I dumped in about 1/4 of the contents into the soil and it took a couple of weeks before I really saw any action in that section. Once they started though, they vined all over the place. The vines covered the trellis in its entirety, and filled in the bottom of the raised bed before spilling out into the pathway. These held their own in the desert heat and sun with no issues, but we couldn't bring ourselves to eat the leaves. Every time we tried them the texture was very slimy once you bit in, and the flavor was like soil. On the flip side, if you cooked them in with an omelette, it tasted exactly like normal spinach.
