Well suited to the UK climate, this vigorous variety produces few spines so it's easier to pick. It has resistance to powdery mildew and yields a large supply of very dark straight fruits. Has firm flesh and excellent flavour.
Plant out after frost has passed, keep well watered in dry spells and you will soon be cutting masses of delicious, young courgettes. Most are best picked when about 15cm/6in long.
Sow indoors March-May, two seeds on edge per pot, 1.5cm/half-inch deep,
temperature of 68-78°F/20-25°C. Thin out to one plant per pot. Harden
off late May, spacing 45cm/18in. Sow outdoors May-June. Pick regularly
to encourage further fruits. Harvest June-October.
