10-14 days at 65-72°F (18-22°C) 

Days to Maturity

75 – 80 Days


Transplant (recommended): Sow 8-10 weeks before last frost. Do not cover seed as light is required for germination. Bottom water or mist lightly to avoid covering the seed with displaced soil. Transplant to cell packs or 2-4″ containers when the first true leaves appear, approximately 3 weeks after sowing. Harden off and transplant outside after the last frost.
Direct seed: Sow seed in late spring, after late frost, early summer, or fall. Thin to stand 12-24″ apart. Support may be necessary.

A sandy, moist, well-drained loam.

Light Preference

Full Sun (6 hours of direct light or more)
