Sow direct in a sunny site in late spring after soil has reached at least 20C (70F) and all danger of frost has passed. Seed can be started indoors in a soil-less growing medium using paper or fibre pots 3 weeks before expected plant out. Warm soil is a must – seed will quickly rot if planted in soil that is cooler than recommended. Seed typically sprouts in 6-12 days. Keep soil evenly moist. Harvest after vine dies or after rind hardens and dulls in colour. Gather before frost leaving part of the stem attached.
