Squash Seeds - Crown Prince F1

Cucurbita

Steel blue skin and bright orange flesh with a sweet nutty flavour, and averaging 3-4kg (6-9lb) in weight. The storage potential is excellent; it can be over 3 months if kept in a frost-free area with good ventilation. Trailing growth habit. Harvest September-October. 

Simon says: "Crown Prince is the only squash we now grow as it is perfect for exactly what we want; it is a vibrant, full-flavoured, orange-fleshed squash and when roasted remains dry and the flavour increases which is perfect for us to turn into soups, purees and even just roasted wedges - unlike a lot of other squashes it doesnt go mushy."
