(C. moschata) This Japanese heirloom was popular in the Edo period (1603-1867). It was first offered in the US by Aggelar and Musser Co., of Los Angeles, in 1922. Beautiful fruit weigh about 5 lbs. This variety is flattened and ribbed, and deep greenish-black in color. They turn more tan in storage. The flesh is deep orange, sweet and flavorful. A great little squash that has become quite rare.

Review:

Squash borers are so common in my area that I grow only C. moschata suash types, which are resistant to them, however quality and flavor can be lower than the maxima types. This one was a flavor and quality winner in my squash patch, with somewhat low yields but thick, deep-yellow sweet stringless flesh. I cured the first one for 6 weeks after vine-ripening, and that seemed to be plenty of time. The individual squash were bigger then expected, 6-9 pounds.
