Small to medium sized lightly ridged courgettes from Rome. The bushes produce good quality fruits with a nutty flavour and are highly recommended. The flowers can be eaten too - try them battered and then fried.

  • Growing Instructions

    Sow indoors - Feb to May for earlier crops and plant out April to August
    Sow outside - March to July when the air temperature is above 18°C
    Sow 2cm deep - it is important to lay the seed vertically as if it is laid flat it may rot before germinating
    Liquid feed once a week with a dilute tomato feed once cutting has started.
