Winter Squash Gold Nugget
Golden Nugget is very much like its name; its globe shaped fruit boasts a beautifully rich golden orange skin and the fruits can reach up to 1kg each. This variety is early to mature and the plant has a bush habit so plant seeds at 80-90cm spacings to ensure the plants has enough space to thrive. Once mature, Golden Nugget has a deliciously buttery taste so would be perfect for roasting with your Sunday joint or made into a delicous warming soup.
