Marrow

Tozer Seeds have been breeding marrows for over 40 years and are the only seed company to have bred hybrids including the most widely grown varieties such as Badger Cross and Tiger Cross. Our primary focus has been to reinvent the marrow by developing smaller fruit varieties like Piccolo which are great for stuffing and shorter fruits like our Bush Baby variety which can also be harvested as a baby marrow.
