How to Grow

750 seed/gram. Sow seed directly outdoors in June, 6 mm (1/4″) deep in rows 60 cm (24″) apart. Thin seedlings to 20 cm (8″) apart within the row. To promote tenderness and to discourage bitterness, blanch the inner leaves by tying the larger outer leaves up over the centre about 7 to 10 days before harvesting – make sure the outer leaves are dry when you do this.
