Sow early Spring to early Summer – all year round in frost free warm areas.
Sow 5mm (1/4”) deep in pots or trays of seed raising mix compost. Transplant to 10-15cm (4-6”) pots in a warm, sunny spot.
Transfer to final fruiting position when sturdy enough. Feed regularly when the first truss has set. Pinch out side shoots as they appear. Can also be sown direct in final position, especially your late crop.
Harvest when golden ripe, although slightly coloured fruit will ripen indoors.
Will grow well in most garden soils but best if you add organic matter, some pre-planting fertiliser and there is good drainage. Staking recommended.
