  • Silver Bell Squash

    I'm being a bit previous adding this in now and it might bite me on the bum, but I'm hoping to grow this variety in the summer. Seeds are a bit out of date so fingers will be crossed!

    Thank you for showing us Jayb. These are really pretty and a very useful size, could rival Uchiki Kuri. Hope they will grow well for you. How much is a bit out of date? If they were fresh seeds then 6-10 years is worthwhile going ahead with. Good luck germinating.

      I don't know how fresh when I bought them, they are just marked sell by 12/31/11, the packet is full so I've a few to try with.
      I love Uchiki Kuri

        We ate the ONE fruit I got from two Uchiki Kuri plants just yesterday, and I really liked it. Shame it was so small (like a large orange)...

          This year is going to be fab for squash! Just think with that extra space, you are going to be squashed out
