Tips for better yield:
*Easy to grow.
*Spacing: Ideal distance between rows is about 2-2.5 m, and 2 m between plants (or 3m x 3m when grown at sloping land, or 2.7 m of distance between beds for the tractor practice).
*Ideal Temp : 16°C to 30°C
*Weeds should be removed at the young stage frequently and lightly, but never do deep tillage to the soil since the plant has shallow roots.
*Support the plant with stakes, which should tide with the rope, especially when bearing heavy fruits and during storm season.
*Cut the old, dry, or disease leaves and petioles.
