How

For early sowing, raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix in a well-lit, protected spot. Transplant after 2-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 3-4 seeds into the centre of a shallow depression (so that water is directed to plant roots) on top of a raised mound of moist soil 70cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position. Enrich soil before sowing with Yates Dynamic Lifter. Feed plants regularly with Yates Thrive Vegie & Herb Liquid Plant Food. Keep well watered at base of plant. Pick fruit when small and tender for prolonged harvest. Protect from snails and slugs.

Hint

Keep well mulched. Grow near bee attracting flowers to promote pollination.
