Start indoors 4-5 weeks before planting out. Sow seeds .3 cm deep and keep moist until germination occurs. Transplant plants 60-75 cm apart once soil warms up, approximately 2 weeks after it is safe to set them out. Allow plants to sprawl. Fruit ripens continuously until frost.

About Organic Seeds

What are organic seeds? An organic seed is an unaltered seed that comes from a purely raised plant with no genetic modification and that has not been affected by chemical applications or additives. Because organic growers are not permitted to use synthetic pesticides on their plants, the plants naturally become adapted to withstand pests and other natural enemies such as harsh weather. They have to, in order to defend themselves. When organic seed is used, the plants have that intrinsic strength. In other words, the flavour, colour, nutrition, and natural defenses are bred into the seed.
