HOW TO GROW
Growing: Planting season: Choose a location with full sun/partial shade where the plant could get at least 6h of direct sunlight.
Soil: Fertile, well-drained soil, preferably rich in organic matter.
Sowing depth: Sprinkle the seeds lightly onto the surface of the soil and press them in gently.
Watering: After sowing the seeds water the area gently to help seeds settle. Keep the soil evenly moist and avoid overwatering which often causes the rot of the seeds/roots.
Fertilizing: Avoid chemical fertilizing, as it will affect the sweetness of the plant.
