* = Usually started indoors in early spring and transplanted.  Planting rate based on that method.
** = Columns 1 & 2 for planting rate based on direct seeding.
*** = Transplanted
Planting Notes: Seeding rates and spacing recommended above are, for the most part, figured on the basis of harvest by hand.  High density planting rates and precision seed placement is now used on most mechanically harvested and grown vegetable crops.  Different seeding rates would apply to those methods of propagation.  The effect of arrangement and plant density in relation to fruit size, quality and total yield will vary depending on your local environmental conditions during the planting, growing and harvest seasons.  Plant density must depend greatly on available planting and harvesting equipment.  Seeding rates should depend in part on the total seed count (per oz/lb.) of seed in the particular lot being used, taking in to account the germination rate.
