The cultivation is carried out by the seedling method. Seeds are planted at the end of March. Before planting, a preliminary disinfecting treatment of seeds is carried out. The process consists in processing the planting material with a weak solution of potassium permanganate. After that, the seeds are washed with warm water. The planting depth of the seeds should be 0.5 cm.
The recommended temperature for growing seedlings is considered to be from 18 to 25 C °. The first shoots should be expected in 5 days. When the first or second true leaf appears, a pick is recommended. The seedlings are transplanted to a permanent place at the end of May or in the first days of June, in the absence of the risk of frost.

Do not allow the fruit to come into contact with the ground, otherwise putrefactive defects may appear. It is worth monitoring the thickening of the bushes and, if necessary, stitching. It is not recommended to allow an excessive abundance of fruiting branches, otherwise the plant lacks nutrients and the moment of fruit ripening will be delayed.
