PLANTING TIME: May be planted as soon as the soil can be worked and again at the end of August or beginning of September for fall crops. SOIL: Well-drained and highly fertile soil. SPACING: Space rows 60 cm apart with seed 2 cm deep. GROWING TIPS: Enrich soil with high nitrogen organic matter. Full sun. Tolerates light shade.
