When to Sow Sweet Sahara Seeds

April June

Harvest

July to September

Where to Sow

Prepare a flat bottom drill 5cm (2in) deep and 10cm, (4in) wide. What to do next  Space seeds 5cm (2in) apart throughout the drill allowing 60cm (24in) between the drills, then cover over with soil and gently tamp down with the back of a rake. It is advisable to give some net protection against birds, once seedlings start to grow, then add some net support for plants to climb and hold the crop.
Alternatively, very early spring sowings can be made in February or March into a length of plastic gutter or modular cells under glass and then planted out against wires. Slide contents of gutter into a shallow drill made in the plot or space modular plants 10-15cm(4-6in) apart once hardened off. 

Handy Tip 

Pick whilst pods are still young and tender,  add to stir fries or eat raw in a salad.
