Size: Ping Pong Ball
DTM: 75-80 Days
Notes: Does require at least two plants to produce fruit (not self-pollinating). Provide support, but expect this to be a very large plant. Most places suggest they get five to six feet tall, but large numbers of people who grow these say they can grow much larger. Fruit is ready to be picked when it swells until the husk splits. Start indoors six to eight weeks before your last frost date, just like a tomato. You can leave these on your counter (in husk) up to a week, or in your refrigerator for three weeks. If you'll be freezing them, store them in their husks.
