How To Grow

Dig a hole 30 cms deep, sow three seeds at about 2.5 cms apart at the centre of each hole. When the first true leaves have appeared, thin out to leave the strongest seedling. Make sure to water well and protect against slugs.

How/When To Harvesting

Continual cropping is essential to prolong fruiting. Cut the stalk of the fruit you want to harvest.
