How To Grow
Sow in a prepared seed bed. Sow 2 seeds per position, spacing 36in (90cm) apart. Cover lightly with fine soil. Firm gently and keep moist. Thin to 1 seedling per position. Keep moist and weed free at all times. Cut fruit regularly to promote growth. Early crops can be sown in pots of seed compost, place seed on edge just below the surface of the compost. Keep moist and maintain a minimum temperature of 68F (20C) until germination is complete, then maintain gentle warmth. Gradually harden off and plant out in December. Pinch out the growing tip when 6 leaves have formed to encourage side shoots. Do not remove male flowers. Water and feed well as fruits develop.
