Average Weight: 20-25 pounds

  • Well draining soil
  • Start seeds indoors: sow seeds 2 cm 1 in deep. Sow 3 seeds in each spot you want a plant to grow and thin to the strongest plant. Keep in a sunny spot until germination occurs.
  • If starting transplants indoors, consider using the 12-cell plug inserts, or a 3 in pot and transplant when all risk of frost has passed.
  • OR plant outdoors after frost has passed
