It can be left to grow along the ground like pumpkins or trained up a trellis where space is limited. .

A delicious courgette climbing variety which is early and prolific. Easy to grow outdoors, excellent flavour.  If grown up a trellis as in the photo they can attain over a meter in length without losing flavour, unlike traditional courgettes. If theft to grow along the ground they tend to curl and twist looking very much like a green snake or serpent! These courgettes are a wow and will amaze your gardening and gourmet chef friends with their shape, colour, and taste. Perfect for the barbecue, cooked with olive oil, grated raw in salads, or cooked with onions, tomatoes, and aubergines for a traditional Mediterranean ratatouille.
