Culture:For earliest harvest, sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost, keeping soil temperature in the mid 70's. Grow in full sun. Shift hardened transplants to garden shortly after last frost. Water regularly and fertilize when plants are 6" (15 cm.) tall and again in mid-summer or cage to save space.
Harvest:Pick carefully when richly colored and firm, but before fruit begins to soften.
Nutrition:Rich in calcium, iron, and vitamins A and C.
