Learn to Grow it
This crop can be direct seeded into warm soil after the last spring frost. If you sow a section or row every two or three weeks, you can get a continuous crop.
Space your seeds 2-4 inches apart in well fertilized soil. Plant your seeds around 1 inch deep.
As this plant grows it may need support in the form of a trellis to keep the vines off the ground. You won't need to fertiize this crop in order to get a healthy yield.
These plants prefer warm weather and soil so they should be grown when temperatures are over 68 degrees F. You should avoid watering them from above as damp leaves may be susceptible to disease.
