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 pros? attractive when mature

What are the cons? prickly as heck!

Review:

Not listed as a vining squash but it is most definitely vining, not even semi-bush but totally vining and LONG vines. I live in Colorado and was inundated with squash bugs this year and this was the first one they attacked and apparently also their favorite. That said, I still got about ten squash per plant, which isn't bad considering. Haven't eaten one yet, but customers love them. Stems and plants are exceptionally prickly, though, so I may or may not sell them again/haven't decided. Some people make a huge deal out of getting injured by their vegetables. Mature size is comparable to a large acorn type.

What are the pros? no squash bugs at least so far

What are the cons? not bush type

Review:

I haven't harvested any fruit yet but I wasn't expecting a huge vine after reading the description. It says to plant 4-5' apart but each plant is now running at least 10' in all directions and taking over the garden. Same issue with Squash Tatume.

Review:

The kumi kumi summer squash is a prolific , rampant grower ... in autumn you'll get an abundance of very hard shelled fruit , which are attractively flecked with green - yellow - orange . The vine has few pests , it is amazingly healthy , and happily roars up trellises , fences , the chook house , your fruit trees , anything .They readily cross pollinate with others in the marrow or zuchinni family ( Cucurbita pepo ) . Can be cut for kitchen use when small , soft and green ; or left on the vine to ripen and form rock hard long keeping ornaments . The flesh can become stringly , once they harden off .
