Squash Seeds – Honey Boat £3.00

Rob says: I first found this squash in the United states, California to be exact, and as far as I know, no-one else in the UK is selling this great old variety. This squash is easier to grow, and sweeter than a butternut squash. Its more productive too. First introduced in 1894, Honey Boat can be left to crawl over the floor or trained up a frame, or wires. The fruits are super sweet with firm, deep orange flesh, the ideal size to serve 2 people. So, no half-eaten squash lurking in the fridge! Its also got its own built-in best before date, as the green stripes will disappear as the squash ages, so youll always know which to eat first. This variety will keep you in roast squash, soup and any number of dishes all winter long, its a real keeper!

Squash Seeds – Butterbush F1 £3.19

If you know your squashes, this is best described as a Crown Prince x Butternut cross, or a kind of flattened round Butternut type.

Squash Plants – Kabocha £6.99

Origin: Japan. You won’t be able to resist a Kabocha squash (Japanese winter pumpkin), not only because of their cute size (immediately you’ll want to make little soup bowls out of their rinds), but also because they are tasty and good for you, rich in beta carotene, with a decent amount of vitamin C and iron to boot. The flesh near the rind is avocado green, giving way to a bright yellow-orange. You could roast them before you scoop out the flesh for a soup or they are delicious stuffed – a multi purpose sweet and savoury squash, and our favourite this year! A similar texture and flavour to a pumpkin and sweet potato combined!
