Job’s Tears is grown as a frost sensitive annual in temperate regions. Job’s Tears prefers full sun and tolerates a wide variety of soils. Provide moderate soil moisture and fertilizer for optimal growth.
Job’s Tears can be direct seeded outdoors once the danger of frost has passed. Seeds can also be started indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Soaking seeds overnight may improve germination rates. Sow seeds ½-1” deep and 6” apart. Seeds may take 2-3 weeks to germinate. Thin seedlings so that mature plants are 6-12” apart.
Harvest “beads” (seeds) in approximately 110 days after planting.
