One of the tastiest squash you can grow with rich, waxy orange flesh. It’s expensive to buy in the shops, so far better to grow your own. These vining vegetables can grow to a huge 4.5m or more. For best results, once growth reaches about 1.2m in length, pinch out the tips and eat them (dipped into tempura batter and fried or delicious in an omelette). This will help curb the spread and prevent fruit from dropping while still tiny.
