Marrows are popular summer squashes, bearing prolific crops of large solid fruits that can be used immediately or stored for several weeks if ripened fully in autumn.
Cucurbita pepo 'Long Green Bush 2' is one of the most popular marrow varieties. It produces an abundance of early medium-sized dark green fruits with cream stripes. Fruits may be harvested as courgettes when young, to avoid a glut, or left to mature into marrows.
