Bostock New Zealand owner, John Bostock, first started growing squash for export in 1985. Since then, BOSTOCK New Zealand has increased from growing just a few hectares of squash to 1000 hectares for the 2019 season.
Marron d’Or is the most premium variety grown in New Zealand and one that BOSTOCK New Zealand has handpicked to deliver the best quality for consumers.
Marron d’Or is a dry type of squash, nutty and sweet in flavour with the perfect blend of dryness and sweetness. It has a consistent dark green colour that is not prone to fading. Marron d’Or can reach a brix of approximately 14-15 when fully ripened; 5-6 weeks after harvest.
The variety is unique because it keeps improving after harvest and once it reaches premium eating condition, it will hold its brix, flavour and taste profiles longer than other commercially available squash varieties.
