  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, moisture retentive

    Unusual variety with bright yellow spherical fruits, making it a fantastic talking point on the plot. Pick at around tennis-ball size to enjoy them at their most tender and tasty. Plants grow vigorously through the season with each one producing up to 30 fruits if picked regularly, making this a very generous cropper.

  • Growing Instructions Sow two seeds to a 10cm pot in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill. Pot on seedlings as they grow, keeping them well-watered and warm, then harden off and plant out in rich soil in a sunny, sheltered spot after all threat of frost has passed. Protect plants from slugs and water thoroughly in dry spells. Courgettes are very thirsty, so cut the end off a plastic drinks bottle and take off the lid, then sink it upside-down alongside each plant. Fill daily in dry spells to deliver water just where it's needed.

  • Sow: April-May

  • Harvest: July-September

  • Approximate quantity: 10 seeds
