Courgettes Nero di Milano
Average 5 seeds
Courgettes are hugely satisfying veg to grow because they're fast, and produce a massive amount of fruit - around 20 courgettes per plant.
Some people think of them as a bit bland. Not so this Italian heirloom variety! Pick them young when they're only 4-6in long for a delicious nutty taste and wonderful crunch.
As well as eating them cooked try them raw sliced with speed peeler and added to salads. You also get the bonus of great flowers which are wonderful stuffed and deep fried, or just torn and tossed into salads for a flourish.
Growing Equipment: Seed propagating kits for sowing.
