Planting & Care
Soil & Water: Prepare soil with well aged manure or compost. Mulch to provide even moisture retention; do not over water once fruit begins to ripen.
Planting & Growing: Begins seeding indoors 6-8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably 55 degrees. Sow seeds 1/4 inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm (80 degrees). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to transplant outdoors.
When 2 inches tall, transplant into 4 inch pots, burying stems up to base of leaves. Maintain at 70 degree. Feed with half strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant. Went nights are reliably warm, transplant 3 feet apart in full sun.
Harvesting & Storage: Pick fruit often when fully colored and eat fresh.. For best flavor, do not store in refrigerator.
