Planting & Care

Soil & Water:Seed prefers sandy, fast draining dry to mesic soil in full sun. Fertilization will promote leafy growth and delay seed production for harvest.

Planting & Growing: Sow in the spring barely covering seed and keep moist and warm until germination (4-8 days). Thin or transplant to 2 feet apart. Also grows well in pots.

Harvesting & Storage:Seeds will be ready for harvest in approximately 120 days.
