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 3-4 seeds into mounds of moist soil 1m apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position with plenty of space to grow. Add compost and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered until fruit starts to ripen, then reduce watering to sweeten before picking. Harvest when underside turns yellow and the fruit gives a dull, hollow sound when tapped. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Blitzem.

Hint

Great companion plant for corn. To reduce risk of disease keep leaves dry by watering at the base of plant or in the mornings.
