Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Cucurbita pepo - Marrow

Marrow was found as a casual growing on St. Day tip, Bissoe (SW74Q, L.J.Margetts), in 1975 and at the municpal waste tip at St. Newlyn East in 1985 (SW85H, K.L.Spurgin). It was also discovered growing on the Isles of Scilly in 1992 in the Hugh Town Industrial Estate (SV91A, D.Barrett).
