An outstanding new introduction as from February sowing it is ready to harvest at the same time as autumn sown Aquadulce. The other advantage over Aquadulce is its strong root system and upright plant habit which holds the pods above soil level.
How to sow
Sow seed 5cm (2in) deep into well-prepared soil. Sow double rows, allowing 23-30cm (9-12in) between plants, and 60cm (24in) between each row. Sow in modules or seed trays of multipurpose compost to transplant if soil conditions do not allow direct sowing.
How to grow
As plants grow, support with stout canes and string as necessary. Pinch out the tips of the plants when in full flower to help the pods swell and to help reduce infestation of blackfly. Pick frequently whilst young and tender.
