PUMPKIN ‘Gem Squash’

1 pkt
Botanical Name
Cucurbita pepo

A South African favourite!! These bushes are hugely productive, yielding up to over 20 cricket ball sized fruit. A versatile squash in the sense that it can be harvested in summer and used like a zucchini (sweet and tender); or harvest in autumn when the skin toughens to store through winter & use like a pumpkin (roasted or stuffed). Boil, bake or steam – delicious with butter. 20 seeds.
