    Hiya Folks,
    I'm after some info on Rice Marrow's. I'm thinking of getting some seeds but I want more info first - Google isn't helping much.
    Has anyone out there ever grown any? Is it worth growing?
    Any info would be great.

    Common Name: MARROW - RICE.
    Botanical Name: Cucurbita pepo.
    Description: Excellent flavour. Hard, smooth skin with orange flesh. Heavy cropper. Keeps well. Sow Spring - Summer in desired growing position. Prefers well manured soil in sunny position. Keep well watered once flowers appear.

    Thanks
    Vicki

    I've never heard of a rice marrow. I thought you were talking about pepino for a minute, then looked it up and realised it is a solanaceae...

    I found this on marrow's;

    from https://www2.dpi.qld.gov.au/business/15285.html

    I'm wondering what it is also known as. I have always considered that a marrow was just a zucchini left on the bush too long.

    I found this just now:

    ~heads off to do some more research on squash.

    Can't seem to find much on pimply squash either.

    Am now quite confused about zucchinis, squash, marrows and some pumpkins.
