50cm between plants is not even close to sufficient IMHO. I have 2.5m between plants and can only just harvest comfortably...

Never grown them but 50cm sounds far too close. If like tomatoes then 90-100 cm should be sufficient. The further apart the more soil the plant has to draw nutrient from and then the bigger the plant in size. I have zucchini plants approx 1.2m across, nothing growing near them.
