Using a good quality, moist seed compost, sow your seeds in a propagator and cover with 6mm (¼") compost. Place on a windowsill or in a greenhouse at approximately 21-24ºC (70-75 ºF) to germinate, usually 5-7 days. Transfer seedlings into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow on. Performs well in a large pot on a patio or most productive when grown in a greenhouse. Plant out in a sunny, sheltered position 50cm (20") apart after risk of frost has passed. Support your plants as the fruit develops. Feed regularly with a proprietary fertiliser. Pick fruits when ripened to red. Sowing to Cropping: 22 Weeks
