Greater London, England
I'm growing Courgette Di Nizza in large pots (I know they would probably be better off in the ground, but I've no space anywhere except in the GH). They have been producing really well. The only problem is that the occasional fruit starts off fine then goes a bit shrunken and woolly-tasting. It happens if I leave them on the plant rather than picking them fairly quickly. As a result I'm picking them promptly when they reach golf ball size, but I thought this variety could grow to tennis ball size. I'm getting enough baby courgettes for my needs anyway but I wonder why this is happening. I'm watering very regularly.
