What are the pros? prolific, easy to grow.
What are the cons? woodchuck likes these too....
On May 22 I planted 4 or 5 seeds ~5 inches apart, under a large tomato cage. These grew aggressively, and within 5 weeks had completely filled and overflowed the cage. I'll plant again this week, probably only 1 plant per cage.
The smaller pods can be mild, while the larger pods, nearing maturity are 12"-18" long, can have a good hot flavor, and are still tender and crispy, not fibrous. The young leaves are tender, and are also spicy and tasty. I added some of the pods to dilly refrigerator pickles, which were ok, but dilly beans and cukes personally appeal much more. Leaves and pods chopped up are good on salad.
I plan to save seeds from year to year!
