BEAN-NEW GUINEA-CLIMBER taste is similar to a sweet summer squash & is an edible bottle gourd that can grow 1m long.  New Guinea, also known as Cucuzza squash, has light green inedible skin & white flesh. It can be steamed, microwaved, stuffed, baked, stir-fried, stewed, or used as a substitute in recipes calling for summer squash. It is a vigorous climber & needs strong support. This is one of the oldest cultivated plants in the world with the first known plantings from 7,000BC. Plant after all danger of frost has passed.

Soak seed in warm water for 2 hours before sowing. Germinate singly in pots, at 20-30C on the surface of a good free draining, damp seed compost. Apply a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite, 6mm thick. Seal container inside a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 7-21 days. Do not exclude light at any stage as this is beneficial to germination.

More About Us

ABSeeds is an Australian owned business trading under the umbrella of Direct Compost Solutions which is owned and managed by Victoria Brun.

We as a company endeavor to provide to the public, Organic, Old Fashioned, Heritage, and Open-pollinated seeds that have not been genetically modified.

We purchased the business in November 2018 and renamed it to ABSeeds (All ‘Bout Seeds) to make the title shorter and represent what we hope to achieve with this business in the years ahead.

Seeds that we can’t grow ourselves we will acquire from people who grow for us, or we may purchase seeds from reputable heritage seed companies.
