Leave a comment

This is a record of how long this particular set of seeds took to germinate and how they looked at various stages from first appearance to the development of the first set of true leaves and beyond. I hope this will prove useful.

Variety: Golden Sweet (RSC)
Sown indoors: 8th April 2014
First Seedling: 11th April 2014
Germination: 3 days

Another new variety for me and another I’m excited about as this one produces yellow pods.
