Planting and Care Directly seed into rich garden soil. Germination can occur over a wide range of temperatures (45 – 75 deg), but cooler is best. For succession plantings, plant 4 weeks apart. If weather is warm, plant in partial shade or use row covers. Grow as a winter crop in temperate climates. Provide average water and use protective row covers to protect against hot weather. Apply fertilizer when 3″ (7.5cm) tall.
Harvest Pick pods when they reach 2.5 – 3 in. To encourage production, do not allow excess to remain on the vine. The extras can be frozen.
