Details

Excellent high quality fruits with thin, bright yellow skin and crisp flesh. Very prolific, it is quick to set fruit and has a long harvest season. They can be cropped small with the flower still intact, or left to develop up to 6-8in/15-20cm long.

Courgettes are hugely versatile and easy to grow.  They need regular watering and picking for good crops. Some courgettes can be grown successfully in pots on the patio.

Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow: indoors, March-April, 1.5cm (½”) deep, in pots of seed compost. Maintain a temperature of approx. 20°C (68°F). Gradually harden off and plant out, late May-June. Allow 60cm (2’) between plants. Or, sow outdoors under cloches in April, or in final position during May. Place seeds on edge to help prevent rotting. Keep plants well watered. Harvest: July to October, when fruits are up to 20cm (8”) long. Pick regularly to encourage a continuous crop. Early sowings can be planted out under cloches in late April to set fruit from May onwards.

Hint's & Tips

When harvesting please discard any bitter tasting fruits. We suggest carrying out a ‘tongue tip taste test’, particularly when harvesting the first fruits from a new plant.
