Basal dressing: Apply 1,000 kg of compost, peanut cake and bone meal each 90 kg to each d.c..
Top dressing: After transplanting, apply top dressing every 3 weeks. At each top dressing, apply 30g of organic fertilizer (N:P:K = 4:3:3), 8g of bone meal and 8g of natural potassium fertilizer (50% K2O) to each hole beside the plants until the fruiting period is about to end.
Irrigation: Each growing stage has different requirement for water. More water is needed during the early flowering period and the fruiting period. When the fruits begin to mature, slightly reduce the amount of water.
(Take the autumn crop of the large-fruited variety as an example)
Train the plant by the one stem method using a frame.
Lateral stems should be removed when growing to some 10 cm long.
Retain 6 - 7 inflorescences on each plant. The first inflorescence should keep 3 fruits and others 4 fruits.
For the final inflorescence, retain 3 more leaves at the tip and remove the terminal bud.
