Sow indoors, March-May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position.
A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days.
Gradually harden off and plant out, late May to June, when frosts are over. Allow 60cm (2’) between plants.
Or, sow outdoors in final position during May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely prepared soil which has already been watered.
Allow 60cm (2’) between sowing positions.  Sow two seeds on edge per position.  Early sowings benefit from cloche protection.
Thin to leave the stronger plant. Keep plants well watered.

Harvest: July-October.

When harvesting please discard any bitter tasting fruits.
We suggest carrying out a ‘tongue tip taste test’, particularly when harvesting the first fruits from a new plant.
