A grower focused review of best practice for storage of cucurbit crops grown outdoors in the UK

Release Date: 
18/12/2013

The crops that are considered in this review are all species of cucurbits. The courgette (also known as zucchini or summer squash) and the marrow, are both fruits of the species Curburbita pepo, but the courgette is harvested at a less mature stage than the marrow. Several types of squash are grown in the UK. The most commonly grown is the butternut squash which is the fruit of Cucurbita moschata. The pumpkin is the fruit of the species Cucurbita maxima. Butternut squash, pumpkin and marrow are sometimes referred to as winter squashes.
