How to grow Courgettes with Quickcrop and expert vegetable grower Klaus Laitenberger.
Originally courgettes were simply marrows which were harvested young. Nowadays, they will still grow into marrows but they have been specially bred to be harvested at their best when only about 10cm (4 in) long. Courgettes are quite easy to grow, two plants will grow enough courgette for most families. Pick small for best flavour, the plant will produce more courgettes as you pick them, they are also ideal for pickling / preserving.
