Courgette seeds - Romanesco
A lovely courgette with characteristic ribs down the striped fruit. It has excellent flavour and texture, even when quite large.
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.
