How

For early sowing, raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix in a well-lit, protected spot. Transplant after 3-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 4-5 seeds into mounds of moist soil 40cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants. Plants can also be sown next to a supporting trellis or tripod (approx 1.5m).

Care

Grow in a sunny, well-drained position. Prepare soil by adding Yates Blood & Bone. Water regularly (to avoid bitter fruit) at plant base and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Food every two weeks. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for basil, beans, broccoli, carrots, corn, lettuce, potatoes, parsnip, radish and tomatoes. Pick fruit regularly (when about 10cm) to prolong harvest.
