What are the pros? Germination, Growth Rate,

What are the cons? Aphids love them


I ordered these and then read the reviews. I git so scared of the blossom end rot I prepared well. You see this is my first year garden at this property. We have sandy loam soil. First I amended the new garden plot with last winters horse manure. Was powdery and composted perfect. I grew these from seed and transplated in late april once about 4 inches tall. In EACH hole i sprinkled bone meal before planting. Doing that so far I havent had one instance on BER. Each plant is currently loaded and grow so fast I have to tie up plant every other day. Get you a 6' post. You are gonna need it! I side dressed them again with the composted manure again at about a month in garden. They love it and look extremely healthy. I will say the aphids have been my only bane. They attacked these viciously but left my other varieties alone. I treated woth pyrethran today. Hoping they keep cranking on as great as tgey have been. Loving them so far!
