Courgette Early Gem F1

Description

STAR BUY. RHS Award 

Courgette seeds - Early Gem F1 produces a very early crop of dark green fruits with a lighter green stripe. It is dual purpose as the fruits can be left to form good shaped marrows.
 

The courgette is probably the most popular form of all the marrow family. Picked young it can be used in a host of delicious dishes; fried with garlic butter or stuffed!

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. For more information please click here.
