Description

Turks Turban is shaped rather like a cottage loaf. Despite its unusual and attractive fruits being highly ornamental and often used for harvest decorations, they are very good to eat and are perfect for stuffing and cooking whole as an individual portion.


WHEN TO SOW


April to Mayn under glass or Mid-May to June outdoors.


Where to Sow


Sow seed on edge 1.5cm (1/2″”) deep to prevent rotting in pots or trays during April to May 2.5cm (1″”) apart under glass at 20°C (68°F) using good quality seed sowing compost. Sow outdoors mid-May to June direct into growing site 1.5cm (1/2″”) deep 2 to 3 seeds in each position 90-100cm (36-40″) apart.


What to do next


Greenhouse sowings should be gradually hardened off once they have developed the first pair of rough leaves and transplanted to growing site in late-May to early-June 90-100cm (36-40″”) apart once all risk of frost has past. Outdoor sowings should be thinned to one plant per station.
