65 days. The ethnic heirloom pumpkin of the Maori people of New Zealand; it is also known as Kumi Kumi pumpkin. New Zealanders say this is the best of all squash, for the young fruit can be boiled, fried or baked, and they have a rich, nutty flavor that is quite delicious. Let the green speckled squash ripen, and they are good as a winter squash. They have become rare even in New Zealand.

What are the cons? I love this squash

Review:

My husband and I have been growing Kamo Kamo squash for several years. The plants are tough! They get blight, they keep going, they get attacked by squash bugs, cucumber beetles, stinkbugs, or whatever nature might throw at them....I am still going to get some Kamo Kamo squash! Even with the local, endless stomached ground hog...I still got a couple of Kamo's! . I like the young "summer squash' Kamo's a bit more than the "winter squash" Kamo's. The young squash are delicious. The mature squash have a nutty flavor, but not sweet. . IF there is anything that I dislike about the Kamo's, it the mature squash has a very hard shell. Puny me has to use a hammer and sturdy knife to open the things. (probably why the darn ground hog left me a Kamo Kamo or two for winter!) also, the vines are prickly, but no more so that many other winter squash or pumpkin vines. So, there will be Kamo Kamo's in my garden this year, and years to come! .

Review:

Is this the real kamo kamo ....? Kumi kumi is far longer than large... Fruits were round of a dize at 25 to 30 cm Some striped green and yellow, , some just yellow Looks like tonda padana squash....more round Delicious... One of the best for sure Taste great cut in half baked with fresh foie gras and smoked duck...a la francaise;)

Review:

This is my third season growing this fine squash. Keeps till spring in basement as winter squash. Cooks like zucchinis when young. I get 20 ft vines with huge leaves and around 15-20 squash per plant. My chipmunks like hardened ones sometimes but rarely. It's October and I'm still getting young ones while the vines are now growing 10 ft up my neighbors pine tree. Upsets that neighbor nicely who planted trees along my property line to obstruct my view of the mountains! Those pines look great with those huge jack in the beanstalk leaves growing higher and higher!

Review:

I ate my first one as a winter squash. Split it in half and baked it with fresh rosemary, sage, thyme, garlic, butter, salt, and pepper in the middle. Delicious! I could eat that every day.

Review:

WE tried this squash for the first time this year and boy, was it prolific! At first I thought it was a winter squash, so let them stay on the vine, then I reviewed the description and found out it could be used as a summer squash. I grew one cluster of 3 seeds and got about 35 total squashes. If I had picked them young (as summer squash), I am sure they would have continue to produce similar to the typical summer variety.
