How to Grow
Choose a sunny, well-drained position and mix Yates Dynamic Lifter into the soil. Sow seed direct where the plants are to grow, sowing 2-3 seeds at each position and later thin to the strongest plant. Or raise seedlings in small pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Transplant seedlings into their final position when 5 cm tall. When growing in pots, choose a pot at least 30 cm in diameter and fill with Yates Premium Potting Mix. Keep the soil or potting mix consistently moist.
Feed plants every fortnight with Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Fertiliser. Protect from snails and slugs with Yates Snail & Slug Bait.
Pick young and tender fruit anytime up to 20 cm long. Mature fruit can develop interesting bumps on the skin. Regular picking will promote a longer harvest.Yates seed is tested and proven. We will gladly replace any packet that does not perform to your satisfaction.
