Gem Squash

Gem squash, also known as Rondini or Rolet Squash is a well known South African favourite. The gem squash has a creamy, pale orange flesh with a lovely texture. Of all the squashes this is probably the easiest and most reliable one there is. A reliable and heavy cropper, each plant can produce fifteen or more fruits grown on trailing vines.

Loves to climb.

Varieties:

Smarag
In many gem-squash producing areas, Smarag is being used as a direct replacement for Rolet with trial and field plantings indicating the possibility of a 30 % increase in yield. Vines are extremely vigorous and fruit size is better than that of Rolet. Production in winter in sub-tropical areas is very successful. The fruit retain the dark green colour longer than Rolet and the flavour is considered superior. The fruit is a globe shape and very dark green in colour. Smarag is widely adapted and is generally used as mature gem squash, but can also be used as baby and young gems.
