Start in flats or direct seed. This variety is intended for fall planting, usually in August or Spetember in most places. Sprouting is enhanced if you put the packet in the fridge for a week before planting. Fertile, composted soil in good tilth with adequate nitrogen, calcium, and moisture promotes fast growth for best flavor. Weather is still very hot, use shade cloth or plant to the east of tall plants that will be gone when weather gets cold. Excellent for greenhouse or coldframe.
