For those who fancy something a little different, these gorgeous golden fruits make a beautiful change. Their brilliant colouring shines out among the silver-mottled, dark green leaves making them an eyecatcher on the plot and they look every bit as good on the plate with each crisp delicately-flavoured slice thinly ringed with gold.

  • Growing Instructions Sow two seeds to a 10cm pot in a greenhouse or on a sunny windowsill. Pot on seedlings as they grow keeping them well-watered and warm then harden off and plant out in rich soil in a sunny sheltered spot after all threat of frost has passed. Protect plants from slugs and water thoroughly in dry spells. Encourage early pollination by cutting off male flowers (on stalks) and rubbing onto female ones (the ones with small swellings behind them).
