Planting & Care
Soil & Water: Amend soil well with aged manure or compost. Ample and consistent moisture is required. For good results avoid overly wet or dry periods.
Planting & Growing: Wait until weather is warm and settled and night temperatures stay above 50 degrees. Sow groups of 2-3 seeds 1 inch deep and 18 inches apart with 3 feet between rows. Thin to 1 per group.
Harvesting & Storage: Cut fruits from vines when they are young and still pale green and before bright yellow. Harvest every few days for longest production. Eat within a day or two of harvest for best quality and taste.
