Easy to grow, ‘Scarlet Globe’ can be harvested within 4-6 weeks of sowing direct into their cropping position. Suitable for container growing as well as beds and borders, they like a sunny, sheltered position in well-drained, fertile soil, although will grow well in poorer soils too. They make an excellent ‘marker’ crop between rows of slower growing veg such as potatoes, peas, parsnip and onion, to be harvested before the main crop fills the space.
Supplied as a packet of 700 (approx.) seeds ready to sow outdoors from February to September directly into their cropping position.
