Planting Tips:

A tropical plant, likes warmer temperatures.  Will be slow to develop in cooler temperatures.  Soak seeds overnight to start in greenhouse 2 weeks before last frost.  Transplant out at about 8 weeks or when temperatures are consistently above 65 degrees.  Needs good, fertile soil and adequate moisture.

Seeding Rate:

35,000-40,000 plants/acre,

Heirloom seeds are hardy but always take care with your garden seeds to give them the appropriate amount of moisture - not letting the vegetable seeds dry out prematurely or overwatering and possibly having them rot.
