(C. moschata) Rare, black Japanese squash; the fruit is flattened, round and has heavy ribbing. Very unique and beautiful. The black fruit will turn a rich chestnut color in storage. Flesh is golden color and has the rich taste of hazelnuts. Fruits are 3-8 lbs. each, and vines give huge yields. Japanese, dark skinned, flattened; did excellent here. Popular with European market growers. Good insect resistance makes this a winner here!

Review:

We have hot hot weather and rain rain rain, but seeing these grow warms the heart. I plucked one today and found out I had to wait for it to ripen. But there are others on the vine. I am so happy. They really can hide under the large leaves and nestle on the grass. So who says they can't grow them successfully don;t squat about squashes! lol

Review:

Great squash! Superior tasting, nutty flavor. I've grown in both the ground and in a 20 gallon (storage) container. Both times the plants flourished though the container yield was smaller. Only 2 squash but almost basketball sized. I start the seeds in early May indoors...in-ground by Memorial Day and harvest by Labor Day. Squash changes colors a bunch of times as it ripens. Will plant this one EVERY year!

Review:

I'm unsure why others have had a hard time growing this, but this is by far the best tasting pumpkin/squash you will ever try. I grow 6-10 new varieties every summer, last summer this one took the grand prize in everything. It's often times described as hazelnut in flavor, but I would take it a step further to say it even has hints of cinnamon, vanilla, and other spices. It's the ONLY pumpkin I can think of that upon boiling, then pureeing up in the blender, you do not have to add anything to make it taste like creamy heaven. We had two plants, and each put out 10-12 small pumpkins. Bear in mind, they are only suppose to reach 2-5 pounds in weight each. However, I find that PERFECT because none ever go to waste from being too large. We use these to make pumpkin spice lattes, risottos, sauces, and so much more. PLEASE GIVE THIS PUMPKIN/SQUASH A TRY!!!! You won't be disappointed. Just make sure it gets PLENTY of water, and a little bit of off and on shade throughout the day.

Review:

My first time growing this squash(summer '13). Got plenty off a few plants. The taste is wonderful and so easy to work with. Tastes better than acorn squash, that I love. Definitely will grow more next summer.

What are the pros? Trash Crop

What are the cons? Squash Bug magnet

Review:

I was so looking forward to trying this new variety that was said to be more resistant to bugs. Instead, I planted 3 times and each time, the squash bugs attacked them voraciously. The only good thing I can say is that they made a good trash crop for the squash bugs so that my other squash were prolific!
