SOW: we start ours about 6-8 weeks before the last frost is expected sowing in modules (cover or put on a windowsill). We transplant to pots when large enough to handle and grow on until ready to harden off and plant after frost danger has passed.
GROW: plant in a sunny sheltered part of your garden or in a pot. You can grow this in a greenhouse. For the best flavour keep soil evenly damp Licatese, is semi-determinate, reaching 90-150 cm it needs staking and will stop growing when fruit sets on the top bud. All the fruits ripen at about the same time (usually over period of 1- 2 weeks).
EAT: these are lovely eaten fresh, a real feast worth waiting for.
