Courgette 'De Nice A Fruit Rond'

General description

Courgette 'De Nice a Fruit Rond' produces prolific crops of attractive round courgettes throughout summer. This exceptional variety has a deliciously different flavour that sets it apart from other varieties. The tasty fruits are ideal for stuffing, or can harvested at golf-ball size for salads

Maintenance

Water courgettes regularly – do not allow the soil to dry out as this will impair their development. Hoe between plants regularly to prevent weeds from establishing. Courgettes appreciate an application of a high potash fertiliser every two weeks during the growing season. Hand pollinating courgettes is not usually required when they are grown outdoors. However, for indoor cultivation the female flowers can be fertilised by pressing a male flower against them. Begin harvesting courgettes from midsummer onwards when they are 10cm (4") long. Regular harvesting will encourage more courgettes to be produced.
