Sowing Instructions
Sow seeds April to May under glass to transplant outdoors. Sow seeds 2.5cm (1 inch) deep in pots or trays of good seed compost at about 68F (20C) under glass or in a propagator. Protect emerging seedlings from direct sunlight to avoid scorching. Alternatively sow direct outdoors, 2.5cm (1 inch) deep from mid May.
Growing instructions
Pot on individual seedlings into 7.5cm (3 inch) pots of compost and keep barely moist to avoid stem rot. Maintain a temperature of about 20C (68F). Plant out 75x75cm (30x30 inches) apart once frost risk passed. Outdoor plantings will be pollinated by insects but greenhouse plants will require hand pollination. Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting commences and water and mulch regularly. Pick regularly for heaviest crops and to extend the season.
Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. Harvest from June to frosts, protect with cloches to extend season.
