What are the pros? I'm the only one growing.

What are the cons? Too many steps to big size

Review:

Seeds and/or young plants need to be stratified in 50 degree weather for a minimum of 2 weeks to be tricked into growing chokes first year. Chokes produced first year were tasty but only 2 - 1/2 inches in diameter. Before deep freeze I am potting the plants in the garden and bringing them inside to grow under LED grow lights. They will be re set out in early Spring. Anticipating much bigger chokes during growing season. Will continue to do until process becomes too tedious.

Would you recommend this product to a friend? Yes
