Sowing, Seeds, Planting Sow under cover in Feb-March to be ready to go out when the frosts finish in May. Sow them individually, vertically down (to prevent rotting) into 3in/7.5cm pots. Germinate at unusually high temperatures of at least 21°C/70F (at 24°C/75F you'll get quicker germination). Seedlings should appear in just over a week. Harden off and plant out in late May.
Care Tips They are climbers so need some support. Water well, and dig in a good lot of compost when planting out. Regular picking promotes further growth.
Flowering July - September
Storing Best fresh, but can be stored a few days in the fridge.
Harvesting You'll be eating the fruits by the end of July. If you keep picking, they'll go on producing into the autumn, and finish in October.
