This special variety originated in Southern India near Bangalore. It is a winter squash belonging to the Maxima complex along with Hubbard squash, bananas and the turban group. It is grown throughout southern India and has a wide following even in the middle east where it is regularly exported to. The fruits are flat, round and quite attractive, being unique to western eyes in shape, they reach about 2 pounds in weight. The flesh is sweet and delightful. A wonderful squash that we believe we are the first to offer commercially in North America.
