Oriental Vegetable - Squash Spaghetti
This is a yellow coloured, oval marrow which is cooked whole, and when the flesh inside is scooped out it looks like spaghetti. When uncooked, it looks very much like a normal marrow inside. It can be boiled, baked or fried and the strands can even be used as a substitute for pasta, making for a very tasty and easy to cook vegetable.
Sow the seed during April/May, on edge 1.5cm deep to prevent rotting, in pots or trays 2.5cm apart under glass at 20C using good quality seed-sowing compost. Alternatively, sow outdoors from mid-May to June direct into the growing site 1.5cm deep, 2 to 3 seeds in each position, 60cm apart.
