To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold-hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
When and Where to Plant: Select a sunny, well drained location and sow
seed in the late spring when the soil is warm and all danger of frost is past.
For earlier crop start indoors 4-6 weeks before setting out. For best results,
loosen soil with spade or fork, fertilize with vegetable food and smooth
with rake. Firm soil over seed and keep moist. Plant in rows to facilitate
Care: Keep soil moist, and feed monthly. Tie vines on a trellis to save space and assure development of long straight fruits..
Harvesting: Harvest regularly when 8-12"/20-30 cm. long.
