My mum (50) years ago. Used to stuff white marrows with hamburger meat, onion & seasonings......we usually had roast potatoes, peas, carrots etc.......the gravy made out of the juices from the marrow and meat was delicious......I live in Victoria Australia.....can you tell me if marrows are still available Hope you can help me

My mother did exactly the same at our place in Burwood Victoria. Beautiful gravy over it after being stuffed with mince onion etc. and that was about 1955. Yum! Was talking about it today at work and the fellow workers all Queenslanders didn't know what I was talking about. Would love to grow them here in Gladstone. I grow Zucchinis and pumpkins without any hassle so why not. Just need some seeds!

I have been looking for marrow seeds for ages and finally found them recently in Masters. I am going to plant a couple and see how they go but not sure if 22 Nov is too late. Soon find out I suppose :)

Do you mean the light green ones ? shaped like a bell ?. I have planted some this season - they've gone mad (people are avoiding me in the street in case I give them another zucchini). They are called Lebanese zucchinis and my husband stuffs them - the seed is faily readily available - think I got mine at Bunnngs
