More Details

Courgette 'Bianca di Trieste' is the pale ivory-green equivalent to 'Defender' so a very healthy, quick growing, tasty and productive variety, which looks lovely mixed up with the other two colours on a plate. It is known for producing lots of flowers, good for stuffing.

Do at least two sowings of courgettes, splitting your packets, so that you have fruit to pick for 3-4 months at a stretch. Sow two or three different colours so they look good in the garden and on the plate.

Care Tips Feed well with plenty of organic matter. Pick fruit regularly to prolong the harvest.
