Description:Plants are bred to be semi-trailing and are ideal for larger patio containers. Fruits can be harvested in about 8 weeks from transplanting. Pick regularly when fruits are 5cm ‘cornichons’ or when they are 10cm long for pickling or salad use.
Sowing Info:Sow seed 13mm (½in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost. Place pots in a propagator or seal in a polythene bag and keep at 21-25?C (70-77?F) until after germination which usually takes 5-7 days. Alternatively, sow seed directly into the soil outside once it has warmed and there is no further risk of frost. Sow at a depth of 2cm (¾in) 75cm (2.5ft) apart and in rows 75cm (2.5ft) apart.
Growing Info:Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions before planting out after last frosts. Leave 75cm (2.5ft) between plants in each direction. Do not remove the male flowers. Best grown outdoors, allow to trail on the ground or plant in larger patio containers. Ensure no ‘all female’ varieties are also being grown so as to avoid cross pollination. Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting commences.
