How to grow


Full Sun to Part Shade.


For best results, unless soil is warm, start indoors in trays of Yates Seed Raising Mix. Cover seed with mix and gently firm down. Keep moist.


Choose a warm, sunny, sheltered position. Warmth is essential for good fruit set. Keep well watered. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping. Harvest when green or as fruit matures and changes colour. Protect from snails with Yates Blitzem.
