- Early and quick to mature.
- Good crops of handy size, approx. 700g (1.5lb) fruits. Quick maturing with sweet flesh.
Sow indoors, March-May for surest results, 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 accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 90cm (3') apart, into well-drained, fertile soil, when frosts are over. Or, sow outdoors, during May for ease, where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½") deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained, fertile soil, which has already been watered. Allow 90cm (3') between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings may benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: September-October.
