Courgette seeds - Sunstripe F1
Unique, shiny, golden yellow cylindrical fruits with striking white stripes with a wonderful flavour and texture. The compact, bushy plants have spinless stems making it easy to harvest.
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.
WHEN TO SOW
April to May indoors
Mid-May to June outdoors
WHERE TO SOW
Sow seed on edge to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2cm (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 1cm (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.
July onwards when fruits are approximately 10-15cm (4-6") long.
