Each packet contains approximately 50 seeds.
Planting and Harvesting Tips:
Start plants indoors 4-8 weeks prior to the last frost of spring. Surface sow or barely cover with soil to speed germination. Keep planting trays warm and do not allow to dry out — keep moist! Transplant outside after the soil has warmed. Space seedlings 1-2 feet apart in all directions.
Fruits turn from green to purple-black when ripe. To harvest, gently roll the berries with your fingers — do NOT pull — and they will fall right off the stem. Flavors are best when cooked with sugar in pies, preserves and desserts.
