Learn to Grow it
This crop can be direct seeded into soil 2-3 weeks after the last spring frost when the soil has warmed.
Space your seeds 3-6 inches apart in well fertilized soil. Instead of growing this crop in rows, plant it in a block which will help with pollination. Plant your seeds around 1 inch deep.
Make sure that your soil is well fertilized as this crop is a heavy feeder and takes a lot of nutrients from the soil. Consider adding compost to the soil the year before you plant.
These plants prefer warm weather and soil so they should be grown when temperatures are over 68 degrees F.
