Long Green Bush Marrow Seeds
[70 days] This bushy marrow variety is best known for its large fruits, which are perfect for stuffing and baking. A prolific producer, just 1-2 plants will produce plenty of traditional, dark-green marrows with lighter stripes. Easy to grow with high yields, this variety has bulkier fruit and drier flesh than the classic courgette.
Unlike the trailing version, this Long green Marrow is compact and bushy, so if you’re short on garden space but like your marrows, this is the one to choose.
Pick when young and tender.
Height: 45cm (18”) Spread: 90cm (35”)
