Germ 7-10 days
British Heirloom
This very old variety has always been popular in England. Bush plants produce green oval fruits that can be used in all the usual ways. When bigger, the squash are often stuffed. An English customer mentioned bread crumbs, onions, and nuts for stuffing – I’d add a bit of hot Italian sausage. 20 seeds


Indoors- Plant in individual biodegradable peat/cowpots 1/2”-1” deep, 3-4 weeks before last frost with soil temperature 70 degrees. Transplant 36” apart after last frost without disturbing the roots

Outdoors- 1/2”-1” deep after last frost, in warm soil at least 70 degrees. Sow a few seeds per space/hill with 24-36”.

Harvest- Check and harvest a few times a week. Cut or kindly twist off fruit, starting at a 3-4”.

Tips- Plant in fertile soil amended with compost or well rotted manure and keep well watered. They benefit from growing on black plastic and by using row covers for weed, insect control, and more rapid growth. Fertilize on a regular basis by watering with compost tea. Sow every few weeks for a continuous supply.
