What are the pros? Tasty, vigorous, germinateswel
What are the cons? Long season required
I realize this is a tropical plant and just not meant for Manitoba, but I really wanted it to work out so I tried it for two years.
The plant itself grows beautifully from transplant; tall, bushy, healthy, coated with tiny little lanterns by mid-august....
But barely any of those lanterns fill and ripen before the frost. Its a lovely plant, but not for short summers, even good hot ones. I'd recommend this for people to try even just a little bit more southern, since they do get close, maybe needing two more weeks for the majority of the harvest to be ready and they are tasty
