Don’t transplant these heat-lovers outdoors until nights stay securely above 55°F (13°C). Prepare soil well with aged manure or compost. Plant only robust seedlings with well-developed roots and mulch well. Fertilize plants regularly, at least monthly, throughout the growing season.



Pick when fruits have sized up and are firm fleshed and glossy. Slice and quickly sauté, or cut in half lengthwise, brush with good olive oil and a little chopped garlic, and then roast or grill until soft and succulent. Serve sprinkled with fresh chopped herbs like basil, dill or thyme and grated fresh Parmesan.
