Planting & Care

Soil & Water: Grows well in pots or rich garden soil, in full sun to part shade, humidity, and plenty of water. Requires 80-85 degrees F for germination.

Planting & Growing: Heat-dependent germinator, does best if sown just under the surface, tamped well, kept evenly moist and in direct sun or under lights or in a greenhouse with temperatures from 80 to 85 degrees F. Germination in 1 to 2 weeks. Spacing should be about 2 feet apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest as late in the year as possible (while still avoiding frosts) for maximum sweetness. Harvest before flowering occurs. Dry and store in jars.
