Cultivation: Start seeds inside 6 weeks before last frost date (or 8 weeks before expected transplanting date). Keep soil warm until emergence (about 75ºF). Then keep plants about 60ºF. Optimum growing temperature range is between 60-70ºF. Seeds will not germinate in cool soil and planting out too early may affect plant vigor. Harden off plants carefully before transplanting. Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Transplant in late spring/summer (soil temperatures at least above 60°F) in a very warm and sunny location.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
