Sow indoors for surest results February-April, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position. A temperature of 21-24 degree C (70-75 degree F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. When plants have developed 3 or 4 leaves, transplant to 12 cm (5-inch) pots and grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 60 cm (2-feet) apart, during May-June, into fertile, well-drained soil. Or sow outdoors May-June, for ease, where they are to crop. Sow two seeds per position, 0.5 cm (1/4-inch) deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 60 cm (2-feet) between rows. When large enough, thin to leave the stronger plant. Harvest: July-October.
