How to grow Baby Boo

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Baby Boo is thought of as hardy, so it can be safe to leave outdoors for the majority of winter (although if in doubt, using a row cover is often a good idea). Use USDA Hardiness Zone 3 - 11 as your guideline for the appropriate climate for this plant. A soil ph of between 6.5 and 7.0 is ideal for Baby Boo as it does best in weakly acidic soil - neutral soil.

Growing Baby Boo from seed

Aim to sow 1.17 inches (3.0 cm) deep and try to ensure a gap of at least 4.94 feet (1.52 metres). Soil temperature should be kept higher than 21°C / 70°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Baby Boo about 14 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Baby Boo

As Baby Boo is hardy, ensure temperatures are mild enough to plant out - wait until after your last frost date to be on the safe side.

Harvesting Baby Boo

Harvest prior to full maturity because this one turns a very pale yellow when fully ripe.1
