Ambassador F1 Courgette Seeds
[50 days ] Known as zucchini in the United States, courgettes are some of the easiest vegetables to grow in thee home garden or allotment. Ambassador F1 is an especially early courgette that yields superior-tasting fruit as early as 50 days after planting. The fruits are dark green, 10-20cm (4-8”) long, and have a sweet, slightly nutty flavour.
The plant itself produces over a long period of time and has an excellent tolerance to powdery mildew. It has such a high yield that two or three plants should be sufficient for an entire family. In fact, the main problem with courgettes is eating them all, as they produce so many fruits so quickly. So have fun finding all the different, tasty ways to cook them! They taste great grilled, baked, steamed, roasted, and stir-fried. They’re also great in courgette bread.
Ambassador F1 has been tested, trailled and recommended by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany. Suitable for growing in containers.
How many Ambassador F1 courgettes do you get from one plant? Each Ambassador F1 plant will produce up to 20 courgette fruits each. Three courgette plants should provide you with a big enough harvest to last the rest of the year if stored properly.
Does Ambassador F1 courgettes need full sun? Courgettes aren't the best growers in shade and will appreciate as much sun as they can get in your garden. The plants are also thristy for water and needs to be watered regularly.
