Growing Instructions: Full sun, Moderate water
Sow indoors 4-6 weeks before the last expected frost date, using seed trays and seedling mix. If sowing directly outdoors, you may do so up 2-4 weeks before the last expected frost date. Seeds should be covered with ¼ of soil, and kept moist until germination, space plants 8 inches apart. You may plant seeds successively every 3 weeks for a continuous harvest. If you live in a warm climate (USDA 8+) you can do a winter crop as well, planting several weeks before the last expected frost date. High temperatures (80°F) will cause the plants to bolt, losing flavor and becoming bitter. Seeds will also have a poor germination rate at these temperatures.
