Growing Calendar for Courgette - Piccolo
A real dual-purpose variety, producing an abundance of nearly round, green striped courgettes, which when harvested small are of great shape for kebabs. These fruits can also be left to rapidly mature into smallround marrows which are perfect for stuffing. A neat, spine-free bush habit makes this variety easy to grow and perfect for containers.
I've had high standard service from Marshalls for near forty [consecutive] years.
Seeds are great. Always my best veg results with Marshall's.
Good service really quickly although last year I did complain about plants arriving to dry and shrivelled, which then all died (quite a large cost to me) and somebody did ring up but no follow up so have not re ordered plants from Marshalls. Boring as in Scotland there is not much chance of buying the same quality of plants.
Round green stripped fruit. Excellent quality and flavour.
Sow Indoors: April-May ½in (1cm) deep in individual module trays of firm pre watered compost. Temperature 21°C (70°F) Keep soil moist at all times.
Sow Outdoors: May-June ½in (1cm) deep direct in harvest location. Keep soil moist at all times.
Plant Out: June. Harden off young plants before planting out into the required harvest position 3ft (90cm) apart when risk of frost has passed.
Harvest small, or leave to mature into small round marrows.
