Selection of the field/land preparation practices

The field should be well prepared free from weeds and a well drainage facility. 1-2 deep ploughing, Soil should be exposed to sunlight, 3 to 4 rounds of harrows to reach fine tilt. Before the final harrow, apply 8 to 10 MT well-decomposed FYM/acre along with 250 gm Trichoderma for controlling soil-borne fungus.

Seeds are treated with Carbendazim 2g + Thiram 2 g per Kg of seeds

Distance between two rows:  8-10 cm (4 fingers) apart,
Distance between seed to seeds :3-4 cm ( 2 fingers),
Seeds are sown in line at 0.5-1.0 cm deep

Transplanting: Transplanting should be done @ 25-30 days after sowing.
Spacing: Row to Row and Plant to Plant - 75 x 45 cm or 90 x 45 cm

Fertilizer dose with timing

Total N:P:K requirement @ 120:60:80 kg per acre.

Dose & Timing:
Basal Dose: Apply 50% N and 100% P, K as basal dose during final land preparation. Top Dressing: 25% N at 30 days after sowing and 25% N at 50 days after sowing.

Irrigation Schedule

Irrigation Frequency Depends upon -

A. Soil type: Light soils need more frequency. Heavy soils need less frequency.

B. Crop stage:
Vegetative stage: maintain adequate moisture for the development of roots. Flowering & fruiting - frequent and shallow irrigation.
Harvesting - gradually reduce irrigation during harvesting

C. Growing season:
Summer - requires frequent irrigation.
Winter- As against the summer season, in winter the
irrigation frequency is longer.
Rainy - very less frequency depending up on soil moisture


Full mature firm green fruits start harvesting at 65-70 days, later at 10 to 15 days intervals. Timely picking stimulates plants to produce more flowers.
Red fresh harvest at > 90% ripen fruits
