Sow and cover seed. Transplant when first true leaves appear. Allow 6-8 weeks for saleable plants. Number of days listed is the length of time from transplanting until harvesting ripened fruit begins. Indeterminate or climbing types benefit from staking and suckering (pruning lower fruiting suckers), while determinate or bush types also benefit from staking. Disease resistance codes include:
