Re: vigna caracalla

The vigna seed should be nicked and soaked for a few hours in tepid water.  Plant the seed about one inch deep. It can take 7 to 21 days for the seed to germinate.  For best results sow the seed indoors 4-6 weeks before the last frost. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.
