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.
|Variety||Bianca di Trieste|
|Common Name||Courgette, Summer Squash|
|Spacing||90cm apart in each direction when the plants have 5-6 leaves.|
|Sowing, Seeds, Planting||Soak seed overnight and sow under cover from late March- April. Push seed, on its side (to prevent it rotting), 2-3cm deep into a 9cm pot of compost. Can be sown direct after last frosts, from May to June.|
|Care Tips||Feed well with plenty of organic matter. Pick fruit regularly to prolong the harvest. Need rich, well-manured ground.|
|Harvesting||Mid June-September. Start picking as soon as fruits are 7cm long. You can pick the flowers before this.|
|Cooking Notes||Bianca is a delicious variety for eating raw in salads when small, and perfect to add to a multi-coloured dish like Sarah's courgette risotto or to make a delicate courgette souffle. If they grow to marrow size, make jam, chutney or soups.|

A really delicious courgette, even my husband enjoyed them and he doesn't really like courgette.
