Teaser: A unique vegetable marrow type.
Description:

Heritage Vegetable

A unique vegetable marrow type. Large, long, creamy fruits are almost cylindrical and have a slightly thicker blossom end. Generally the surface is smooth but may sometimes have distinct ridges. Fruit tends to grow larger when summers are cool most of the time (day max 23 C (73 F), night min 12 C (54 F) ). Long Ontario-style heat-waves reduce marrow size. Individual plants may exhibit a certain amount of vine-like growth. Most plants are more bush-like than vine-like. Please note that vegetable marrow can exhibit considerable variation in fruit colouration from very pale greenish white, to darker green, to pale greenish-white with darker green stripes. Occasionally crops can almost be indistinguishable from zucchini.

How To Grow 10-12 seeds/gram Squash are a hot weather crop. They need full sun and deep, rich, well drained, organic soil with a pH of 5.5 to 6.5. Before planting, work in lots of compost. Directly plant seed outdoors from late May to mid June 2.5 cm (1") deep in hills 2.4 m (8') apart with 4-6 seeds per hill. After germination, thin to 3 plants per hill. Seed can be started indoors 3 weeks before the plant out date. Squash do not transplant well--use paper or fibre pots that can be set directly in the soil. Protect mature squash from frost and cold temperatures.
