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 in groups of 2-3 seeds, 18 inches apart and 1 inch deep with 3 feet between rows. Hill planting can be done sowing 5-6 seeds per hill each hill 5 feet apart. Thin to 3 strongest plants. Vertical supports may also be added to save space or grow long straight fruit.
Harvesting & Storage: Cut fruits from vines before seeds are large inside. Harvest every few days for longest production. Eat within a day or two of picking for best taste and quality.
