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 Tiger Cross and Zebra 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.

  • Bush Baby F1

    Attractive baby marrow with a bush type habit and good flavour. Bush baby has been bred to satisfy the market requirements for a smaller marrow. Approximately three quarters the size of a standard variety, Bush Baby is suited to both field and container production and produces a high count of fruits per plant over the season.
