Planting & Growing:Sow in finely worked soil in full sun in early spring or late summer. Sow seed about 1 inch apart and cover evenly with 1/4 inch of fine soil. Firm gently and water with a fine mist. Thin seedlings to about 12 inches apart. Sow additional seeds every two seeks until summer heat arrives. Provide shade and daily water when hot.
Can be grown in pots or containers (approximately 3 full heads to an 8 inch pot).
Harvesting & Storage:Harvest mature heads when solid and well filled out. Discard heads if they elongate due to heat as they will become bitter.
