Relatively new to the UK, Squash 'Jumbo Pink Banana' is a must-grow for all winter squash lovers. This formidable variety produces huge pale pink fruits that average 7-9kg each, but with a little encouragement can produce champion squashes up to 27kg in weight and 4ft in length! 'Jumbo Pink Banana' boasts sweet, flavoursome orange flesh and stores well. Reliable and high-yielding even in poor summers, this unusual variety will need plenty of space to ramble, but will reward you with a truly impressive crop. Height: 60cm (24in). Maximum spread: 6m (20ft).
Winter squash are a fantastic addition to any vegetable patch. Delicious roasted, baked, mashed or used in stews and soups, they are packed with vitamin A, very easy to grow and virtually pest-free – all they require is space to sprawl.

Sow squash 'Jumbo Pink Banana' indoors in April for transplanting later on. Sow seeds on their sides in individual 7.5cm (3in) pots of seed compost at a depth of about 1.5cm (½in). Place in a propagator or seal pots inside a plastic bag at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) until germination, which takes 5-7 days. Do not exclude light, as this helps germination. Once germinated, grow squash on in cooler conditions until all risk of frost has passed and the plants are large enough to be transplanted outdoors. Gradually acclimatise squash plants to outdoor conditions over 7-10 days before planting in warm, well drained, humus rich soil in full sun. Choose a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sun per day.

Thompson & Morgan strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3
