Productinformation

Courgette or zucchini – Round F1 mix (Cucurbita pepo)
The round courgette is very easy to use for stuffed courgette oven precipices. the mix of F1 (hand pollinated) round courgettes consists of One Ball F1, Eight Ball F1 en Géode F1. The fruits are yellow with a green star, dark green, and light green.

Start seeds in smaller cell trays or don’t overwater because wet and waterlogged soil can easily kill your seedlings. The plant grows fast, don’t start the seeds too soon because plants can not handle frost and need plenty of light. A few weeks (4-6) before your last expected frost date is soon enough. If you only grow one or a few courgette plants and your plants don’t grow fruits you can pollinate the flowers. Pick a male flower (the one without a mini fruit) and hand-pollinate the female flower. As soon as more flowers open and the bees become more active pollination will no longer be a problem.

Sowing and harvesting

  • Start seeds indoors around 15-20 °C in  April or May;
  • Transplant to a large cell-size tray of P9 flower pots;
  • Plants can not handle frost;
  • Depending on the season you can harvest until October;
  • Harvest fruits when they are 15 cm in diameter.

Growing advice

  • Give plants plenty of space
  • Remove older leaves with powdery mildew
  • Low maintenance and easy to grow
  • Don’t forget to harvest the fruits regularly!
  • If the plants do not produce fruits you can hand pollinate the first flowers.
  • If your garden is smaller you might like to grow the climbing courgette, Black forest F1
