Squash Plants – Crown Prince

Ask any allotment veteran their idea of the best-flavoured winter squash and you can pretty much guarantee this one will come out top of their list. A nutty, honey-like depth and smooth, pudding-like flesh make it a superb choice for roasting. One of the most long-storing of all squashes. Steel blue skin and bright orange flesh with a sweet nutty flavour, and averaging 3-4kg (6½-9lb) 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.
