If you want to use a courgette raw in salad, then this is the one. Gold Rush is a thick skinned, hybrid yellow variety that caused a stir when it was introduced for its prolificacy in a small space. With a bush habit, it produces uniform sized fruit with waxy skin and creamy flesh, that are best enjoyed young.


Franchi, established in 1783, is the oldest family-run seed company in the world. It specialises in endangered and heritage vegetable varieties, inspiring growers to support biodiversity by planting something slightly different from the mainstream.
