I did try Twonga a few years ago - I wanted something useful up the trellis, like the catalogue said; I think they didn't even germinate... I decided that Scotland was just too cold for them.

Never heard of onion squash - must look into that! Definitely need something with a short season here. And small suits me fine (single portion veg always appreciated!).

My neighbour grew twonga in her tunnel a few years ago, they were not very nice. My favourite has to be acorn squash, they are a small size, so perfect for one or two people and grow very well, as they don't have to become enormous, they are a good choice for our climate
