Courgette Atena Polka F1 is a yellow skinned courgette. Good quality flesh and thin skin, best harvested up to 25 cm long. Check out our great choice of courgette and squash seeds we have on offer, one of the all time favourite courgette is the variety Black Beauty.
Sow the courgette seeds late March through April under glass for growing in the greenhouse, or late April through May to transplant outdoors. Seeds can also be sown direct outdoors, in a finely prepared bed, from late May. Sow some of the courgette seeds every two weeks during the season up to until early July, this way you will have a great supply of courgettes till late autumn. Keep the last sown plants in the greenhouse to extend the season.
Sow the seeds about 2 cm deep in 7.5 cm pots of good compost or in seed cells, 1-2 seeds per pot/cell, so you can save the stronger seedling.
Transplant the seedlings into bigger pots when they are large enough to handle.
Place in a propagator before transplanting outside to acclimatise the plants to the outdoor conditions. Leave around 60 cm between the plants when planting into final position.
Pick the courgette fruits regularly to encourage further production. One plant should produce 6-10 fruits. The bushy plants can be grown in larger containers, growing bags.
