WHEN TO SOW

April to early June

WHERE TO SOW

Early sowings in pots or trays 2cm (¾”) apart under glass at 22°C. May sowings in cold frames or under cloches. Early June sowings direct into the growing site 2cm (¾”) deep, 2 or 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24″) apart.

WHAT TO DO NEXT

Glasshouse and under cover sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late May, 60cm (24″) apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one seedling per station as soon as possible.

MATURITY

July onwards

HANDY TIP

Pick fruits when about 10cm (4″) in diameter, do not allow fruit to grow larger and old as this will slow down production.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

A good source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C and E.
