Thompson & Morgan - Courgette 'Black Forest' F1 Hybrid Seeds produces vegetable plants with a unique climbing and space saving habit, best grown in containers on the patio. Stems can be trained and tied to a trellis, stout cane or netting and will produce dark green, cylindrical 15cm (6in) fruits in abundance if picked regularly.
Sow seeds April to May. Sow seed 19mm (¾in) deep in 7.5cm (3in) pots of free-draining compost. Place in a propagator or seal container inside a polythene bag and place at 20-25C (68-77F) until after germination which takes 5-7 days.
Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out once all risk of frost has passed, allowing 60cm (24in) between plants if they are to be supported. Keep well watered and pick fruits regularly for a long season of production. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed during May, preferably under cloches.
Youngest fruits are delicious raw, just diced up in a mixed salad.
