We are two chaps rather crazy about Gem Squash and have a passion for growing them.
Born in Africa, we have fond memories of these little delights making a regular appearance on the dinner table. Cooked in a variety of different ways; from filled, grilled, in the skin, out the skin, topped with cheese........oh we could go on!
We missed them so much that we decided to plant our first seed sometime ago now, even though very doubtful our little gems would succeed in the unpredictable UK climate.
To our amazement we have enjoyed year on year success growing them and indulging ourselves in their delicious produce.
They are very easy to grow and really do well during the summer - we have harvested as late as October before so it can be an exciting adventure to look forward to each year.
Following awesome customer feedback, we have added new and exciting products to join our quirky gem squash family in 2021 as we continue to grow.
We hope you enjoy our site and products. Please do take a look at our Facebook page and leave us a review, like, recommendation or share your experience.
