Grown by Jefferson at Monticello where seedstock was provided to Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. Vigorous, heat-loving plants. 6-ft. tall plants may benefit from staking. Harvest by cutting stalks when there are more brown pods than green. Stand upright to dry. Or, allow to fully dry and cut dry stalks with open pods. Turn dry stalks upside down over a tarp or cloth, shake seeds out, and winnow.
