Sow seeds from February to May. Sow seed 1cm deep, in 7.5cm pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator and keep at a temperature of around 20-25C until after germination, usually 5 to 7 days. When first true leaves develop, transplant into 13cm pots. Finally, plant into 25cm pots or into growbags. Grow on at least 15C. Prefers a moist, well-drained soil. Harvest when they are 4 inches long. Train along wire, allowing the main shoot to reach the tip. Pinch out growing point and allow two side shoots to trail downwards. Keep plants moist at all times, and shade if necessary. Keep humidity high and pick fruits regularly.
