Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. In warm areas, sow seeds in late spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. For better germination, pre-sprout seeds indoors by soaking in water for 24 hours. Wrap in wet paper towel and keep warm between 75-85°F. Plant when seeds sprout. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Train to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest. The fruit has best flavor when picked green and about 12" long.
