Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last spring frost, and transplant in late spring after nights have warmed. Sow outdoors in climates with 120 or more frost-free days. Germinates best at 75°F. Plant in a sunny spot in rich, well-drained soil. Feed every two weeks with a high phosphorus fertilizer.

Ripen on the vine for best flavor. Fruits are ripe when they are just firm and the light green stripes begin to turn to yellow. Fruits can become mealy if left on the vine too long. Vigorous vines require tall, sturdy stakes or trellises.
