Winter Squash Musquee de Provence
Marquee de Provence seeds produce large round, semi-flat scalloped fruits weighing up to 10kg. The skin turns from green to golden brown on maturity and the flesh is a dense orange colour and of excellent flavour which is almost like that of nutmeg. The sweet, yet splightly spicy favour makes this squash a favourite amongst chefs. It can also be eaten raw! This variety has a very long storage ability and plants have a trailing habit.
