Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/ summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. The seed coat is hard and should be soaked in warm water for 24 hours. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1-ft. diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 4-6' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Hand pollination may be necessary. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or leave vine on the ground. Fruit can be stored in a dry, cool environment during winter months (avoid direct contact with concrete).
