How to sow
Sow seed 1cm (½in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free-draining 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.
How to grow
When first true leaves develop transplant into 13cm (5in) pots. Finally, plant into 25cm (10in) pots or into growbags. Grow on at a minimum of 15˚C (59˚F). Train along wire, allowing the main shoot to reach the tip. Pinch out the growing point and allow two sideshoots to trail downwards. Keep plants moist at all times and shade if necessary. Keep humidity high and pick fruits regularly.
