**SHORT SOW BY DATE**Light green mottled fruit but the difference is that Tondo is round. Pick when the fruits are about 10cm in diameter.Trailing habit, needs space. WHEN TO SOW April to early June WHERE TO SOW Early sowings in pots or trays 2cm (Â¾") apart under glass at 22Â°C. May sowings in cold frames or under cloches. Early June sowings direct into the growing site 2cm (Â¾") deep, 2 or 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart. WHAT TO DO NEXT Glasshouse and under cover sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late May, 60cm (24") apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one seedling per station as soon as possible. MATURITY July onwards HANDY TIP Pick fruits when about 10cm (4") in diameter, do not allow fruit to grow larger and old as this will slow down production.
