Scoop the shredded centres out of these generous spaghetti squashes and use as a wholesome substitute for pasta! Squash ‘Primavera’ F1 hybrid has consistently outperformed other spaghetti squash varieties, it’s reliable, heavy cropping, resilient and has a great taste. Whether you bake it, steam it or add it to sauces, the flavoursome yellow flesh will make a lovely and healthy change to wheat-based options. Long storage potential, harvest your squashes throughout late summer and autumn, any you don’t use will keep for up to six months! Height: 45cm (18”). Spread: 2m (6’).


1 packet (5 seeds) (KA9969)

Sow seeds April to June. Sow seed 2cm (3/4”) deep in 7.5cm (3”) pots in good free draining, damp seed compost. Place in a propagator at 21-25C (70-77F) or sealed container in a polythene bag until after germination. Can also be sown direct outdoors once the soil has warmed. Do not sow in cold soils. Sow two seeds every 1.2m (4’) and thin out to the best seedling. Ideally grow under cloches until the plant is established. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions for a few days before planting out after all risk of frost has passed 1.2m (4’) apart.

Keep squashes well watered throughout the season. Feed and mulch regularly. Prefers well drained, moist, rich soil in full sun. Also grows well in cooler climates.

As versatile as a potato - use roasted, baked, mashed or steamed and enjoy the tasty and attractive orange flesh.
