WHEN TO SOW

April to early June

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2"") deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1"") apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2"") deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 60cm (24"") apart.

What to do next

Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 60cm (24"") apart. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.

MATURITY

July to October - pick when fruits are 10cm (4") in diameter.

HANDY TIP

Pick regularly to ensure that plants continue to crop. The larger round courgette fruits are ideal for stuffing and baking.

NUTRITIONAL VALUE

A good source of pro-vitamin A, vitamins C and E.
