We plant here around August 1 (as early as July 20 or as late as August 15) to harvest in late September through hard frost (20 deg. F).  (Approximately 900 seeds/pkt.) Remember to  not plant these in the spring  without expecting some rapid bolting to seed and a low yield. The late summer planting is the best time for best results. UPDATED FOR 2022
