Level of difficulty to grow:
Days to maturity: 90-100 days
Plant spacing: 48 inches apart
Light Requirement: Requires full sun during the day
Soil Requirement: It requires well-drained, loamy, and nutrient-rich soil. Maintaining soil quality is very important for its head formation.
Water Requirement: Keeping the soil moist at all times is vital. The water evaporation can be prevented through mulching the soil. Avoid watering the leaves.
Harvesting: Chop off buds that have tightened by cutting right above the stem. The tightness of the buds should be a determinant of its maturity and not its size. Do not let the head spread out as this indicates spoilage of the fruit. For best taste, harvest in the morning before the soil heats up.
