Description

From recent British breeding, an easy-to-grow, early-maturing variety, well suited to our summers. The flattened round-shaped fruits combine the attractive skin colour of a Butternut with the shape of Crown Prince. An average of 5 fruits per plant, each weighing 1.5kgs (approx 3lbs) develop on semi trailing vines. Fruits have a rich orange flesh with a 'melon aroma', and a small seed cavity. Stores well.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing

Sow May to early June. Sow seed 2cm (0.75in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost at 21-25C (70-77F). Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag until after germination which takes 7-10 days. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow 2 seeds every 90cm (36in) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established.

Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed, 90cm (36in) apart each way.

More Info

Keep well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly.
