Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo
Dark green fruits with creamy stripes on bushy plants. It produces large fruits perfect for stuffing and baking, or boiled and served with a cheese sauce. Bulkier fruit with drier flesh than zucchinis. Prolific crops of true, traditional marrows. Good source of vitamin C. At their best while small and tender, so cut regularly for maximum yield.
How To Grow
Sow 12mm (1/2") deep direct in final position. Sow seeds in clumps, later thinning to the two strongest seedlings. Allow 90cm (3") between rows and plants. Keep the plants well watered and prepare the soil well by adding organic material and a complete fertiliser. For early crops, sow seeds in punnets or trays and plant out when strong enough. Seedlings emerge 6-10 days.
When To Plant
Spring through to Autumn
