PLANTING: Start seeds in early April or 8 weeks before transplanting outdoors. Place seeds in Jiffy 7’s or in flats with insert with a good soil substitute, like Berger BM-2. Plants seeds 1/4″ deep.
Germinate at 80F until emerge. After emerge, reduce temperature to 70F. Transplant outdoors after all danger of frost is past & soil has warmed up. Space plants 18-20″ apart in row. Control insects with insecticide. Hi-yield Garden & pet dust works fine in a garden for this. HARVEST: Clip fruit stem with a knife or small pruning shear when desired size is reached. Pick regularly to encourage future fruit set
