Broad, attractive fruits on sturdy, tall plants. Flavor & quality are just as good as hybrids, if not better, but definitely later. 30 seeds
Indoors- Start 8-10 weeks before last frost, 1/4” deep with soil temperatures 75-80 degrees. Liquid fertilize seedlings every 7-10 days. Transplant 18” apart when danger of frost has passed.
Harvest- When fruit is shiny and smooth, before losing its luster.
Tips- Plant in fertile soil, water with compost tea every two weeks and use row cover to give the plants extra warmth, especially in the north. Mulch and keep well watered.
