Description

A 1948 heirloom. Large plants and large purple, pearl-shaped fruits. Does well in hot and humid regions. Developed by the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station at Gainesville, FL. Frost Tolerance – Little-to-None.

CULTURE: Plant seeds in flats 6-8 weeks early. Allow for unrestricted growth. Transplant when ready, or growth can be stunted.

SUN: Provide plenty of light to avoid tall, leggy growth.

WATER: Avoid top-watering with cold water. Provide light, well-drained loam, rich in phosphorus and calcium, bonemeal or eggshells. Too much nitrogen will over-stimulate and inhibit fruit formation.

SEED PRODUCTION:Produces perfect, self-pollinating flowers. Different varieties can be grown for seed in one garden.

SUGGESTED Individual Portion: 1 Tablespoon.
