|When to sow||
We trialled this variety out of curiosity and discovered it really is very early to fruit even when the nights are cool, it is parthenocarpic, which means it flowers and fruits early even in cool weather. This is a fine flavoured soft skinned pale green variety. Prepare soil by raking in COF, sow three seeds in thumb like depressions in early/mid November when soils are warming up and after last frosts, water lightly in, when the plants are about 10cm tall base dress with a table spoon of COF. The plants will begin to produce fruits prolifically about mid December and continue into February, harvest when they are about 18cm long.
