I'd like to try growing them next year. Do you need a long growing season for them to mature?

@gjones i can grow them here in socal in spring - early fall. doesnt seem they need a ton of time, usually seed to fruit in 2.5 months. like 50 varieties, so try some out bc different genetics. the 1st 3 i tried all died but last 3 types all good 👍😃

@honestgreensco I think I’d have to start them on a heat mat indoors in April. Our summers are hot so they should be fine out in the veg garden after they’re big enough to be planted.
