How to grow

How

Sow direct in warm conditions or raise in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Firm down and keep moist. Transplant when 5-7cm high.

Care

Choose a well drained sunny position. Prepare soil by adding Yates Blood & Bone. When first flowers appear begin applying Yates Uplift Organic Liquid Fertiliser regularly. Keep well watered. Harvest when green or as fruit matures and changes colour.

Hint

Great companion plant for basil. Warmth is essential for good fruit set. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping.
