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.

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.
