Florentina is a fairly generative variety and quickly produces new flowers. This requires good growing conditions in terms of soil and temperature. Obviously, the structure of the soil must be good and free of wet spots. In an open field, it is best to cultivate Florentina on raised beds. It is possible to plant in substrates with a greater plant density, but a good balance should remain between leaf and fruit production. The higher the plant density, the earlier it will be necessary to start pruning the leaves. The plant type and the time of planting have a great influence on the harvesting time. Autumn planting with plugs leads to a harvest peak in the spring. Frigo plants (March/April) have a later harvesting time and will peak in July/August. Early plantings are appropriate, but the temperature of the ground must then be at least 7-8°C. Temperatures in the spring should be at least 10-12°C and climbing, otherwise plants will have to be covered. Good rooting is important in order to be able to withstand hot periods later on. Crops in the ground generally remain compact which makes harvesting easier. Florentina is not particularly demanding in terms of feeding.
