Romanesco courgette seeds grow a beautiful courgette flower, and then develop into medium ridged courgettes with a great, slightly nutty flavour. Leagues apart from watery shop-bought courgettes, romanesco courgettes are a distinct heirloom variety originally from Rome.

Sow these romanesco courgette seeds between February and June indoors in large pots or from mid-May outdoors. Each courgette plant needs 1m square of space and plenty of manure.

Courgettes can be baked, grilled, steamed, stewed, roasted, stir fried, pickled or even eaten raw. Romanesco courgettes have a ridged exterior meaning they form attractive little cartwheels once sliced. Courgette flowers are also delectable stuffed with ricotta or goat’s cheese, dipped in batter and deep-fried.
