Planting and Harvesting Tips:
These warm season annual plants require full sun, ample water and plenty of room to grow. Start seedlings indoors and transplant outside when the soil is warm enough in spring. Space 5-8 feet apart in all directions – vines can wander up to 15 feet. Continue to provide plenty of water during the growing season.
Crops are ready to harvest when they have a deep solid color and the vines die back and turn brown. Cut fruit from the vines using a sharp knife; do NOT pull.
