From British breeding comes the world's first golden skinned climbing courgette. This striking courgette produces good yields of colourful fruits when harvested regularly. The bright yellow courgettes are less watery than many varieties, making them particularly useful for salads and stir fries. Courgette 'Shooting Star' has an upright, climbing habit that is well suited to growing in smaller gardens against a trellis of fence - tie the stems in regularly to help support the weight of the fruits. Grow them in groups of 3 to improve pollination and maximise your crop. Height: 120cm (47"). Spread: 60cm (24").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible.
