Sow

For early sowing, raise in pots of Yates Seed Raising Mix in a well-lit, protected spot. Transplant after 3-4 weeks. For direct sowing press 4-5 seeds into mounds of moist soil 30cm apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants. Plants can also be sown next to a supporting trellis or tripod (approx 1.5m high).

Grow in a sunny, well-drained position. Prepare soil by adding Yates Blood & Bone. Water regularly (to avoid bitter fruit) at plant base. Apply Yates Uplift Organic Liquid Fertiliser regularly.

Hint
