How To Grow

Sow 12mm (1/2in) deep. Cover with a fine layer of compost and firm gently. Keep soil moist and warm. Seedlings appear in 6-10 days.

Thin to the strongest seedlings allowing 40-50cm (16-20in) between plants. Train up wires to ensure fruits go straight, remove growing point at roof level. Occasionally male flowers (those without a swelling behind the flower) may form, especially if plants become stressed. These should be removed as pollinated female flowers may produce bitter fruits.
