Start seeds in flats up to 12 weeks before last frost. For best results, when large enough to handle, transplant into another flat. After frost, transplant seedlings outdoors 6" apart. This variety is early maturing and extremely hardy-an excellent winter vegetable. Transplant to a rich, deeply dug soil that is well fertilized. Try to keep the soil pH 6-6.8. Self-blanching, but added blanching helps-keep earthling up the plant's base to where the leaves diverge to blanch lower stem.
