It has a lovely yellow colour. It should be harvest as young as possible (10cm), then it is tender as butter. The many large, male flowers are well-suited - battered in beer batter - for deep frying.

Plant out from the 20th of May (Attention slug damage!) either at the base of the compost heap or in nutrient-rich soil. Frost-protected cultivation necessary. Distance 80-100cm in all directions.
