Summer Squash

Tozer Seeds have developed a unique range of courgettes. Alongside traditional green courgettes, which have been developed for yield, disease resistance and improved habit, we have created novel varieties such as the yellow striped variety Sunstripe and the round variety Piccolo. For keen hobby gardeners we also offer a trailing type.

  • Piccolo F1

    A real dual-purpose variety. Produces an abundance of nearly round green striped courgettes which are a great shape for kebabs. These fruits can also be left to rapidly mature into small round marrows which are perfect stuffed. A neat spine-free bush habit makes this variety easy to grow and perfect for container sales.
