    Thinking about trying this. Anyone growing this in areas where summer high temps are regularly near 100 degrees?

    I grow it outside here in Salinas. It doesn't get to 100 regularly though so I am probably offering no help at all.

    I've grown it in my cold house which is open on both ends during most of the year. Much of the summer that growing area gets in the 90's several times a week. The growing area is shaded in the summer and the plants get fertilized regularly. I have since moved them in to a cool greenhouse with 80's in the summer. The growth was good in the summer outside, but they suffered with the low 40's nights in the winter.
