|Price:||($0.50 / Count) & FREE Shipping|
- Brilliant yellow-orange flesh, like a pumpkin’s. Both the texture and flavor of Kabocha squash is similar to a sweet potato: the soft, moist, fluffy flesh is surprisingly sweet and slightly nutty. IT is so naturally delicious, that you could eat it simply roasted and unadorned.
- Globe-shaped fruit have black-green skin and sweet orange-yellow flesh and weigh between 3.75 to 4 lbs. Very vigorous and early, it requires less fertilizer in the early stages of growth than other varieties. Stores well.
- PLANTING: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in late spring/early summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Seeds will rot if soil is too wet or cold. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1' diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 4-6' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. The vine can be trained to climb a vertically support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or left to sprawl on the ground. After harvest, winter squash should be left in the sun for a few days to cure before storing.

Well, we started our plants in a greenhouse and 11 of 15 germinated. I love kabacha squash and we've not had any luck growing in the last few summers (seeds given to us by friends). I'm hopeful this year because the plants look healthy but only time will tell if they survive our northwest summer and actually produce squash. Do far so good.
