Courgette Chiaro di Nizza is an Italian heritage variety that is easy to grow and very productive. It produces unusual pale green round courgettes that are their very best when about 10cm round cricket ball sized.

Courgette Chiaro di Nizza is a compact trailing plant that requires little maintenance other than feeding once a week with a high potassium fertilizer (like Tomorite) when the plant has begun to flower and watering regularly. Keep picking fruits regularly through the season as this encourages more courgettes to grow and it will produce a harvest from July to October.

Treat as a normal courgette in the kitchen and either griddle, thinly slice raw for salads or add to pasta or soups. The courgettes can also be cut in half, the seeds scooped out and then filled with cheese etc & roasted. The flowers also make an unusual treat as they can be stuffed and fried but only freshly picked homegrown courgette flowers can be cooked like this, as the flowers go limp very quickly so it would be very unusual to find them on supermarket shelves.

A versatile unusual round, pale green courgette that looks impressive on dinner plate especially when mixed with other coloured & shaped courgette varieties.

Indoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained & humus rich soil. A sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds which causes damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow:
April to May.
How to Sow:
Sow seeds vertically 1cm deep in a pot or tray of moist seed compost. Place in propagator/cover with glass, polythene bag until the seedlings appear (5-8 days). When the seedlings have 2/3 leaves transplant them into 2l pots and grow on for a few more weeks. Harden them off by putting outside during the day for 3/4 days. Plant out in mid - late May when the chance of frost has passed. Incorporate plenty of organic matter to feed the plant and help retain water. Keep well watered.Can also be grown in greenhouse soil provided it is very fertile and they are well watered or even in gro-bags or containers.
Care:
As they are hungry feeders, feed them every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but do not wet the fruit.
Harvest: July to October. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping when they are about 7cm long. The flowers can be picked before this.

Outdoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained & humus rich soil. A sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds which causes damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow: Early June.
How to Sow:
Squashes are hungry feeders so to give them a good start outside, dig a hole 30cm square and fill with well rotted manure and cloche the area a week before direct sowing. Mound soil up and plant 2 seeds 2.5cm deep into the mound and cloche again until the seedlings grow. Remove the weaker seedling, and remove cloche a couple of weeks later. Seed will not germinate until the temperature is consistently above13°C. Keep well watered. Space plants 90cm apart, and 90cm apart in rows.
Care:
As they are hungry feeders, feed them every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but do not wet the fruit.
Harvest: July to October. Pick fruit regularly to prolong cropping when they are about 7cm long. The flowers can be picked before this.
