DIRECT SEEDING: Sow in late spring, when soil temperature is at least 70°F/21°C, and frost danger has passed. Sow 2 seeds at each spacing interval, ½-1″ deep; thin to 1 plant per spacing interval after seedlings are established.
TRANSPLANTING: Sow 2-3 seeds per container about 3 weeks prior to transplanting date.
HARVEST: when color fully developed and stems are dry, but before hard frost. Cure out of direct sunlight at 80-85°F/27-29°C with good air ventilation for 5-7 days. Wash fruits, dry, seal with furniture polish; use for displays. For L. siceraria types, harvest when stems dry and color fades; keep on vine as long as possible, frost will not harm fruits. Store in dry, well-ventilated area until completely dried (3-6 months) prior to crafting use.
