Although it is easy to sow, but like all others, there is always something you must know to have good results; The first thing you should know is that this plant prefers soft, well-drained soil. This is achieved with the help of a shovel moving the earth.

This is a ¨rastrera¨ plant, that is, they develop flush with the ¨soil¨, so it is advisable to choose the place where we are going to plant well, it should have a lot of exposure to the ¨sol ¨, it is sown in ¨liños¨, I always use something that allows me to sow as straight as possible.

With the "guide" in place, it's time to start making a "furrow", not very deep along the place we are going to plant; This is done with the help of a "hoe", we dig and break the "lumps" that have remained from the movement of the "earth".

A good part of the result begins with the choice of the "semillita"; In this case they can obtain from their own fruits, but it is better that they acquire it in a house that is dedicated to storing them.

Once we obtain the ¨semillitas¨ it is time to start sowing, it is sown 2 or 3 per position, leaving a space between each position, from one to three meters, we use a meter-twenty wood that indicates the space.

We place 2 ¨semillitas¨ in each position, then we make a mountain and a circle, this is done to identify the position where we sow and to retain the ¨water¨ a little

We finish the sowing with an abundant "watering", at this stage it is very important to keep the place "humid" this will help to "sprout"; To know when and how much to "water", you can be guided by the "humidity" of the soil

It is to remind you that you do not like the ¨Cold¨ so it is advisable to sow in spring, if everything goes well from the seventh day you will be able to see the first plants, and 160 days later, they will be enjoying the first fruits. It doesn't take much, but it has these little secrets that make for a good result. If you are starting a garden, this variety of ¨zapallo¨, you cannot miss.
