Marrow Tiger Cross F1

Description

RHS Award

EXHIBITION.

Tiger Cross F1 is a traditional looking fruit of dark green with lighter green stripes. It has a bush habit and can be harvested young as courgette or left until 30cm long for marrows.

Marrows can be cut before the first frost and stored in a frost free but cool area and used during the winter. However, unlike courgette the skin is tough and is either removed before cooking or just after. Raise and grow as courgettes.

Delicious roasted with a little olive oil, they make for a fresh accompaniment to any dinner.

Where to Sow

Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2") deep to prevent rotting in pots 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.
