PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: Sow seeds in well-drained soil in a sunny location after the threat of the last frost has passed. Plant 2-3 seeds about 1" deep and space plants 3-6' apart in all directions. Best when planted against a trellis, lattice, chain-link fence or other type of support so that the vines can climb and the fruit can hang.  Or start seeds early indoors in pots and transplant outdoors after all danger of frost has passed.

Approximately 10 seeds per gram
Auction is for 1 packet = 20 seeds

Harvested fresh in summer of 2018, for sale through 2019!
