Description: These beautiful tasty marrows which keep well and are also fantastic picked at the courgette stage, were sent to us by Audrey Melville of Miramar Wellington in 2000. Many courgettes are not tasty if let grow to the marrow stage but this variety gives both. They are prolific croppers and we have found many ways to eat them. Our favourite is stuffed marrow using buckwheat or rice with onions and peppers as the stuffing but spicy marrow cake is a close second and tastes like bread and butter pudding but without the bread!
