Courgette Tuscany F1 Vegetable Seeds
Perfect for the UK climate. This vigorous variety produces few spin so it's easier to pick. Yields large, straight fruits which are delicious with a dark appearance and firm in texture. Strongly resistant to powdery mildew.
Plant out after frost has passed, keep well watered in dry spells and you will soon be cutting masses of delicious, young courgettes. Most are best picked when the fruits are about 15cm/6in long.
Planting & Harvesting
Sow & Grow
Sow indoors for surest results, March-May, 1.5cm (½in) deep, on edge, in small pots of compost. Water well and place in a warm position; 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep moist. Seedlings usually appear in 7-14 days. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out 60cm (2in) apart, into fertile, well-drained soil, during May-June when frosts are over. Or sow outdoors in May where they are to crop, 1.5cm (½in) deep, directly into finely-prepared, fertile, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Allow 60cm (2ft) between sowing positions. Sow two seeds on edge per position. Early sowings benefit from cloche protection. Thin to leave the stronger plant. Water well until plants are established. Harvest: July-October.
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.
