This great value squash plant collection consists of 3 x 9cm potted plants, 1 each of the following varieties:

Walnut F1 - Walnut has been bred to give much improved yields and earlier maturity which makes it so ideal for the British climate. The best bet in northern climes! Fruits average 1.5-2kilo in weight and is highly adaptable to different growing conditions. We know you won't be disappointed! The flesh is deliciously flavoursome and nutty with an excellent texture which makes it one of the most versatile of vegetables - as Britain’s cooks are discovering.

Sunburst F1 - A bright yellow-skinned Patty Pan type, this high yielding variety yields squashes with a fine flavour and texture. Rather ornamental when growing.

Uchiki Kuri - A teardrop shaped Japanese 'Hubbard' type squash growing to approx. 1.5kg in size. With a wonderful sweet and nutty flavour, it is traditionally eaten braised in stock as a winter vegetable.
A Best Buy variety as recommended by the Gardening Press and Consumer Groups.
