Can be difficult to grow
Sow seed 0.2cm deep in pots. Re-pot several times before transplanting into large final pots in a greenhouse or sheltered site outdoors.
Stake plants and feed regularly with high-potash feed. Hand pollinate flower with small paint brush.
Start picking when green, swollen and glossy. Leave longer to develop mature colour and sweeter taste. Pick regularly for more fruit.
