Growing Information

  ● Suitable temperature for germination: around 70℉
  ● Suitable temperature for growing: 50-70℉
  ● Soil pH: 6.5-7.5
  ● Days to maturity: 40-50 days from sowing


  ● Soil cultivation: soak seeds in water overnight to encourage germination. Sow at 1/2" spacing and 1/4" deep. Gently cover with a thin layer of soil.
  ● Water cultivation: sow on a sponge soaked with water and liquid fertilizer. Maintain water carefully; allowing it to dry out will prevent germination.
  ● Place in direct sunlight.

  ● Three weeks after sowing, thin to 2-2.5" spacing.
  ● For outdoor production: After second thinning (4-5 true leaves established), add
fertilizer and cultivate the soil every two weeks.


  • Harvest at 6-8" length, leave 2" from the roots. Adding fertilizer can encourage
    growth for extended harvest.
