(C. maxima) 95-110 days (also known as Blue Kuri) A lovely little Kabocha type squash, this one weighs 2 to 3 lbs, and it maxes out at about 8 inches in diameter—perfect for individual servings. The fruits are blue-green to gray, flattened, lightly ribbed globes. Dryish flesh is yellow-orange, thick, dense and very sweet. This Japanese variety is a superior storage type as well, and great for marketing!

What are the pros? Neat and tidy vine system

What are the cons? none at this time

Review:

A great variety! Perfect germination rate and very strong seedlings. This variety grows a little slower than the other squash varieties grown this year (Red Kuri, Boston Marrow, Baby Blue Hubbard, Georgia Candy Roaster and Oregon Sweet Meat) however the Blue Hokkadio has the unique trait of forming a very neat vine system that does not "reach" in all directions. One additional note: Blue Hokkaido does not like extremely hot weather in my experience. It is the only one that wilts during the hottest parts of the day and requires a little more water than the others. Other than that minor quirk it is an excellent choice.

Review:

I've grown these for several years, saving seed each time. They have out produced every other kind of winter squash I've grown. The fruit average 5 to 8 lbs. very nice for market as well as home use. The flesh is thick, deep orange and very tasty, sweet and nutty. Slowly turning a tan color, they usually store for about a year, though I had one keep for 2 years, it was still tasty. I got 60 fruit from 6 vines grown in a double dug bed with lots of organic compost. Drought resistant, I had some sprout on the edge of a forgotten dry compost heap, they received no water during a very hot California summer and still managed to produce 2 small fruit per vine, I was amazed to find them hidden in some dead weeds come fall. We do have problems with borers and squash bugs, they show reasonable resistance to bugs. Highly recommend these beauties.
