  • Pruning: In early Spring before new growth begins, cut the old canes as low to the ground as possible to encourage buds to break from below the soil surface. Remove and discard the canes.

Fairly tolerant to heavy soils, though susceptible to root rot in poorly drained soils. First crop in early July; second, heavier crop from September to frost. Heavy Fall yields when mowed to ground level in early Spring while still dormant. If heavy soil, add peat moss, dehydrated cow manure or compost. Hold plant in hole, spread roots, plant crown 1 inch below soil, fill 1/2 way; compact soil; complete filling; compact soil; water well. Susceptible to Verticillium Wilt. Do not plant where tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, or peppers have been grown in the past 3 - 4 years. Plant as far away from these vegetables, if growing them also. Can train to trellis.
