Description – Courgette Tricolour is a unique mix of three F1 Hybrid varieties. Each plant producing in abundance, throughout the summer, flavoursome, shiny, round shaped courgettes of either pale green, dark green or bright yellow on vigorous bushy plants. Delicious eaten raw, stuffed or boiled.
Sowing – Sow seeds April to May under glass to transplant outdoors or sow mid-May to early June outdoors. Sow seed 2cm (¾in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of good seed compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 21-25C (70-77F) until germination, which takes 5 to 7 days. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed and all risk of frost has passed, 2.5cm (1in) deep at 75cm (30in) apart, in rows 75cm (30in) apart.
Growing – Gradually acclimatise plants to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out once frost risk has passed, allowing 75cm (3in) apart each way. Feed with potash fertiliser once fruiting commences. Water and pick fruits regularly.
Harvest – June to October
