Prairie Fire

Prairie Fire offers delicious, barrel-shaped little 3 inch fruits that ripen up deep orange-red with pretty golden stripes. Plants are covered with fruits early, and you’ll really look forward to picking them off the vines because popping these sweet treats in your mouth is like eating candy from the garden! Semi-determinate Prairie Fire vines grow to just 3 feet tall and are perfect to grow in containers for summer enjoyment on your patio, deck or in any sunny location.

STARTING SEEDLINGS

In early spring, start indoors about 6 to 8 weeks before outdoor night temperatures are reliably 50-55°F (10-13°C). Sow seeds ¼ inch deep and 1 inch apart in a container of seed starting mix. Keep moist but not soggy, and very warm, 80°F (27°C). Provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant outside.

When seedlings are 2 inches tall, transplant into individual 4-inch pots. Maintain at 70°F (21°C). Feed with half-strength fertilizer every 2 weeks until ready to plant. When nights reach 55°F (13°C), gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Plant these vigorous, semi-determinate, early bearing vines 3 feet apart into rich soil in full sun.


GROWING NOTES

Transplant one seedling per container; minimum pot size should be 18 to 20 inches in diameter and 18 inches high. Use fresh potting mix to prevent soil-borne disease. Water regularly: containers may need water daily in hot weather. Fertilize every other week with a liquid, all-purpose vegetable fertilizer for strong plants and good yields.


HARVEST AND USE

Plant seedlings several inches deeper than they were in seed starter. Provide strong 3 feet stakes or tall wire cages at planting time as plants get heavy with fruits and need support. Mulch to provide even moisture retention; don’t overwater once fruit begins to ripen.
