    What do you call quite big? What do you want to use it for?

    Marrows will keep if cut - hang them in your shed or garage - somewhere cool. Although if you need it next week, why not just leave it til you need it and cut it then?

    As rat says, it should keep if you cut it and put it somewhere cool. Will it get too big if you leave it, do you think?
