Courgette Summer Holiday F1 

A unique high yielding F1 variety, Summer Holidays has superb round yellow striped vibrant fruit which can be picked at any size. The baby fruits are great for BBQ skewers or pick fruit about the size of a tennis ball, for standard use or stuffing. They can also be left to develop into larger round marrows. A higher dry matter content makes them great for cooking. The plant habit is a compact, spine free bush for scratch free picking and improved fruit quality.

Cultivation advice Courgette Summer Holiday F1 

  • A sunny spot protected from strong winds is essential.
  • The soil should be well drained and rich in humus, the more the better.
  • For an early start (late Mar) place a single seed edge-ways 1/2 inch deep in seed compost in a 3 inch pot. The critical part is temperature, these need at least 65 F continuous soil temperature (preferably more to maximise germination rates) until germinated.
  • Keep the soil moist /  water copiously around the plants, not over them.
  • Keep weed free to allow air circulation.
  • Once the plants start to fruit, feed every 14 days with a tomato type fertilizer, these are greedy plants.
