What are the pros? easy, mild taste, pretty
What are the cons? takes over the yard
I read the recent reviews saying these don't taste good and I was surprised. Maybe they are picking too late.
These are vigorous, indeterminant vines, that need a lot of space. I would start them in a tomato cage and stake them mid-season, but by fall I would still find 12 feet vines sprawling across the lawn. They will overshadow anything smaller nearby.
They produce unbelievable amounts of fruit - I would collect a colander at a time. I found picking when slightly green to pale yellow was the best time. They were sweet and slightly tart without any earthy taste (which might be what some people are missing). If you let them go too long, they get soft and almost turn to liquid inside. I had very little problem with cracking unlike w other varieties. They even produced after frost, well into Oct.
These make an amazing sauce! Smooth and delicious, and looks creamy. A lovely surprise.
