- Growing Instructions:Sow two seeds to a 10cm pot in late spring in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill. Pot on seedlings as they grow, then harden off carefully and plant out in a sunny, sheltered spot once all threat of frost has passed. Leave 90cm between each plant and protect from slugs. Cut the last of the fruits before the first frosts leaving some stalk attached and they will store for several months somewhere dry and cool.

- Harvest: September-November
- Approximate quantity: 10 seeds.
