(C. pepo) 100 days—Kakai's completely hull-less seeds are superb for roasting! Slightly oblate, delicately ribbed fruits are an unusual shade of yellow-orange, mottled here and there in dark green to virtually black. Simply scoop the seeds out of the 5- to 8-pound pumpkins, rinse, salt if desired, and roast in the oven until slightly browned. Semi-bush plants are compact and great for smaller gardens.

What are the pros? Edible Seeds

What are the cons? Squash Vine Borers

Review:

The squash vine borers really hit this pumpkin hard; and with all of our efforts of squishing bugs, extracting worms, and burying sections of vine with dirt and compost, the plant died prematurely. We did manage to harvest 3 pumpkins before the plant gave up and died. Each pumpkin only yielded 1-2 cups of seeds. Some of the seeds were already sprouting inside. Like others have mentioned online, the flesh is rather tough and not for cooking. The chickens loved it. We did carve one just for fun. I may grow these again but they do take up a lot of space for only a few handfuls of seeds. Best to plant it on the edge of the garden and let it sprawl in the yard.

What are the pros? Good early crop good producer.

What are the cons? none, a great crop!

Review:

Planted them in late April (northern Alabama) in the wood chip covered paths. They made short vines about 5 ft long, and had 3-6 fruit on each one. Later plantings (June) had to battle squash bugs, so the yield was less, and they needed watering to keep growing well. The fruit was picked (early July) when nearly all orange and stored on the wood chip covered ground, turning completely orange within a couple of weeks. I put one fruit on the kitchen counter and it is still solid and good in mid-February of the next year! Seed size is very good, about the size of the seeds purchased at the Mexican grocery, with the same green color and good flavor. Yield was about 1 1/2 cups per fruit, and they were very easy to clean when allowing the fruit a few weeks to dry down. When roasted with olive oil and seasoned salt they are great! Much higher proportion of mature to immature seeds than the Lady Godiva variety, along with less vine makes this the best hull less I've ever tried.

What are the pros? Attractive, No Hull, Delicious

What are the cons? I wish they were seedier

Review:

These are gorgeous pumpkins for fall decorations and the seeds are delicious. The seeds are the easiest to prepare and eat of any winter squash I have ever grown. You don't get hull stuck in your teeth and you don't have to do anything other than rinse and roast. I only wish they were seedier. They seem less seedy than regular squash. We were sad when they were all gone. I am going to try carving them next year. They are fairly thick but I think it could work. If you like eating pumpkin seeds, grow these!

What are the pros? I love the IDEA of these

What are the cons? Difficult to germinate?

Review:

I direct-seeded this variety along with several other squash varieties in my garden this year. This was the only type that seemingly never germinated. After a week with no appearance of seedlings, I planted the rest of my packet, and still saw no plants, even though the other varieties were growing nicely. Maybe they are better suited to starting indoors?

What are the pros? Delicious seeds, attractive

What are the cons? B careful when transplanting

Review:

You should try this! Its pretty easy to grow. Especially easy when direct seeding when its warm enough. You may get 1 - 3 ten inch fruits per plant. Let it mature then harvest for good seeds. I take the seeds out and dry them in a dehydrator on low. They are delicious. I even used some that I dried to grow more next season!
