Sow seeds directly in the garden after danger of frost has passed. For an earlier crop, start indoors 4-5 weeks before the last frost. Grows best in fertile, light, sandy soil.
Seeding depth: 2.5m (1")
Space between plants: 60 to 90cm (24 to 36")
Space between rows: 1.5m (5')
The fruit is mature when it separates easily from the stem.
