BEST TO START EARLY INDOORS

In spring, sow seeds 1 inch apart and 1⁄8 inch deep in a container of fine seed starting mix. Maintain at 60–70°F (16-21°C) and provide a strong light source. Keep evenly moist but not soggy. Be patient, seeds can take 14 to 28 days to germinate. Feed young seedlings every 2 weeks with half-strength fertilizer. When they have several sets of leaves, transplant 3 inches apart into a deeper container or individual pots so root systems have room to develop. When 3 inches tall, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant 8-10 inches apart in fertile soil in full sun or partial shade in very hot climates.

GROWING NOTES

Plant in windowboxes or hanging baskets, or as a pretty edging along a garden path or border. Heirloom Pineapple bears sweet 1 inch fruits the first season after sowing. Plants grow about a foot across without sending out runners. Feed and water regularly and plants will continue to fruit for 2 to 4 years.

HARVEST AND USE

Pick and enjoy these petite perfumed berries when they turn a pastel yellow and give slightly to the touch. Sprinkle over morning cereal or nestle the berries on tarts or cakes.
