What is it like inside and how do you use it? Is it courgette-like or firmer (pumpkinny?)?

Does it only grow on white t-shirts, or is that just for best results?

That first one reminded me of Nancy Blackett from Arthur Ransomes 'winter holiday'.

It's firmer than a courgette but not as hard as a pumpkin, it's peeled, chunked and cooked (seeds n'all) in curries of various types.

And it's no so much the white t shirt but the camo shorts that make the difference in my experience...

BTW if anyone wants to try them next year give me a shout in Feb. Mum gets loads of seed, there are several varieties, big round, small round, long, curly long.

They need LOADS of heat, light, muck and space.

I thought it could be the extra light reflected onto the squash by the white of the cloth.

Did you grow them in your tunnel or outdoors?

Tunnel, mum & dad have been trying outdoors unsuccesfully for most of my life.
