Organic Marrow - Tiger Cross F1

This remarkable British bred F1 hybrid is similar to the ever popular 'Striped Green Bush' type but is earlier, better cropping and more uniform with good resistance to Cucumber mosaic virus.

This superb RHS AGM variety is ideal for eating fresh or storing in cool, frost free conditions for winter use. Height: 45cm. Spread: 90cm.

Sow seeds from mid April to June, 20mm deep in pots or trays of moist seed compost, and germinate at 20C, which takes up to 7 days. Sow seeds on edge for reliable germination. Alternatively sow seeds outdoors in rich soil in full sun from mid May to June, 20mm deep at 75cm spacing. Pot on individual seedlings to small pots of compost. Plant out at 75cm between plants each way once frost risk has passed, then water and mulch regularly. Harvest fruits regularly for heaviest crops and to extend the season.
