Hilo Laotian Squash

1 Review | Write a Review

(C. moschata) Hilo Laotian seems to be a unique landrace that may have originated In Laos. In 2010 Joe was in the remote area of Northern Laos and he collected fruits at a jungle market with his daughter Alicia, It was 4.00 a.m. because the farmers try to sell their products so that they can get to the fields by daybreak. Joe found the present squash at a stall in Hilo Hawaii; an older Asiatic gentleman ( barely speaking English) was selling these squash. With the little that Joe could find out, it was a pure strain that was from Asia!

What are the pros? Easy grower, vigourous vine

What are the cons? Major squash bug attractor


This is a super fast growing vine. Easy and quick germination even in this cooler season we've had. Bad news is the squash bugs just love this vine to death. I wasn't able to get the bugs killed off so I'm using it as a bait vine to keep them off my Black Futsu this year. I'll try again next year and see if I have better luck with it.
