Useful/additional information Sow seeds in mid spring 1cm (½in) deep in 8cm (3in) pots of moist compost. Germination usually takes 7-10 days at 21-24C (70-75F). Gradually acclimatise the plants to outdoor conditions before planting outdoors after all risk of frost has passed 60cm (24in) apart. Plant in a sunny sheltered spot, in fertile moist but well drained soil and keep well watered. Pinch out the growing point when 6 leaves have been made and train the shoots produced up netting, trellis etc. Do not remove the male flowers from this variety. Harvest the fruits before they reach full size for improved quality and better cropping. Tasty Green also grows happily in a greenhouse.
