Planting & Care

Soil & Water:Amend soil well before sowing with lots of aged manure or compost.

Planting & Growing:Plant only when spring weather is warm and night temperatures stay above 50 degrees. Plant in slightly mounded hills, 3 feet in diameter and 3 feet apart. Plant seeds in a triangular pattern with 2 seeds 1" deep at each point. Thin hill seedlings to 3 strongest plants. Protect seedlings from birds. For container growing use fresh, good quality soil and sow seeds 4" from edges. When 3-4" tall, remove all but the strongest seedlings so that one (15" diameter pot) or two (20" diameter pot) remain. For larger pots spacing should be 8-10" apart.

Harvesting & Storage: Harvest when 5" inches long. Frequent harvesting keeps plants producing.
