Overview

Features

  • Organically grown
  • Medium sized fruit
  • Disease resistant

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 3-4 seeds into mounds of moist soil 1.5m apart. Later thin to the two strongest plants.

Care

Select a sunny, well-drained position with plenty of space to grow. Add compost and Yates Blood & Bone before planting. Keep well watered until fruit starts to ripen, then reduce watering to sweeten before picking. Harvest when underside turns yellow and the fruit gives a dull, hollow sound when tapped.

Hint

Great companion plant for corn. To reduce risk of disease keep leaves dry by watering at the base of plant or in the mornings.
