Where to Sow  Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost.
Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24") apart.                                                                            
What to do next     Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60cm (24") apart once all risk of frost has past.  Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
Handy Tip    If harvested when young you can peel with a knife or potato peeler .
If left till fully mature they do go as hard as a brick , and can only be cut into with a Saw or a chopper and hammer
