Direct sow after frost, or start indoors 2-3 weeks earlier. Transplant in hills spaced 6' apart, 3 plants per hill, or in rows 36" apart. Plants can grow 6' or more, so give plenty of space to take over. Mulch early to help suppress weeds. Harvest when skins thicken to a deep green, before any hard frosts. Cut the stem two inches above the fruit. Cure in a dry, warm place for a week or so, then store in a cool, dry, dark place.
