Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Allow fruits to fully ripen before harvesting. To determine readiness, look for browning of the stem or a yellow spot where the fruit rests on the ground. Cut fruits from the vine — do NOT pull. Pulling can damage the quality of fruits.
Start indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost of spring. Transplant outside after the soil has warmed to 65˚ to 75˚F. Sow one inch deep and space 12-18 inches apart in rows 3-4 feet apart. Plants prefer full sun and moist soil with plenty of organic matter.
Harvest daily with a sharp knife during hot weather — pods taste best when young and grow quickly past the stage of prime eating. Wear gloves and long sleeves for protection from spines.
