Courgette One Ball F1
NEW TO KINGS.
Courgette seeds - One Ball F1
Unusual bright yellow round fruits of excellent flavour. Bushy plants produce good yields of round courgettes, ideal for roasting and stuffing. Can be harvested from the size of a golf ball up to the size of a tennis ball.
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.

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.
Regular picking produces a crop over many months . Pick fruits when young to maintain a long cropping period.
