Seed Sowing Depth: 1/2" deep

Starting Indoors:  Start 4-5 weeks before planting outside. Sow 2-3 seeds per cell/pot, thinning to one per cell/pot. Sowing into individual biodegradable peat/cow pots reduces root damage when transplanting. Provide 75-85ºF soil temperatures. Transplant out after last frost, 12-18” apart.

How much does a packet plant: 20-25 foot single row  

Harvest: Clip pods off at 2-4” to keep the plant flowering for more production.

Tips: Plant in fertile soil, amend with compost before planting if needed. Provide adequate, even moisture for the best growth. Mulching helps retain moisture.

    It's too soon to plant in my area due to recent ice/snow, unusual for Mississippi. Taking advantage of this warmer weekend to prep but I understand there is another cold blast coming the first weekend of February. I do love my packages in the mail from Pinetree!

    Most of it wilted by mid July. Very satisfied with what I picked!
