I am looking at growing Cuban Criollo 98, Corojo (or Corojo 99), and Piloto Cubano, but I'm not sure when I should sow. I need to be able to harvest either before our summer blast furnace kicks in or later in the season when the season cools off (September-ish).

Can anyone tell me the approximate days to maturity on these varieties so I can decide when to plant?

Thanks.

Expect the process from the starting of germination to transplanting into the field to require 6 to 8 weeks. After transplant, most varieties require at least 60 days before the leaf begins to mature. So 60 to 90 days post transplant to complete harvesting.
