Sow indoors, January-March, in trays of seed compost. Keep moist and warm, 20-25%C (68-78%F).
When the seedlings have developed 2-4 leaves, transplant to individual 7.5cm (3?) pots. Maintain a temperature of approx. 18%C (65%F).
Transplant to large pots or borders in the greenhouse or cold frame. Allow 40cm (15") between plants. Keep soil moist, particularly when fruits are forming and feed regularly with liquid fertilizer. Harvest: July onwards.
