When and Where to Plant: For earlier crop start seeds indoors 3-4
weeks before night temperatures stay above 55°F/12°C and daytime
temperatures stay above 80°F/27°C, then set out. For later crop, sow
directly outdoors in sunny location after weather warms. Grow best in
light, porous soil. Cultivate and enrich with vegetable food and organic
matter. Firm soil over seed.
Care: Mulch to conserve moisture and feed every 3 weeks..
Harvesting: Pick when ripe.
