(C. moschata) 95 days This Japanese heirloom is a good producer of small, tan colored pumpkins that are heavily ribbed. Orange flesh is sweet and dry and has a spicy flavor. Very hard to find. A great variety for specialty markets. First offered in America by the Oriental Seed Company, of San Francisco, in 1927.

What are the pros? Outstanding flavor; prolific

What are the cons? None

Review:

These didn't like our hot, drought-stricken high summer, but once the weather cooled a bit and I increased their water, the vines went crazy with fruit. I agree with a previous poster: the rich flavor even outdoes a butternut, and they have a similar dense, dry flesh that is creamy when roasted. There's a tiny hint of spiciness in the finish, as if you'd added a little pepper when you hadn't. I will definitely be growing these next year - not only do they have superior taste, but they produced when my butternuts completely failed. Handsome little pumpkins, too, and just the right size for two people.

What are the pros? good taste, long storage

What are the cons? powdery mildew

Review:

Grew these in my home garden in 2013. Unfortunately, they were susceptible to a powdery mildew infestation, and I only got about 1 mature squash per 2 vines. Really enjoyed those though. Attractive appearance and nice mildly sweet flavor. Storage was excellent, one that I picked in August made great pumpkin bread in January after being used as a table decoration all fall.

Review:

This is the first year I've grown these squash. I think I had two vines, and probably have about 12 - 15 squash...losing count at this point in the season. I agree with the other reviewer, one squash is good for 2 people / 2 meals, but one could accommodate 4 people / 1 meal. Good texture and taste. I just roasted it and depending on the rest of the meal, served it with either butter and a pinch of salt, or just with a sprinkle of brown or Turbinado sugar. I hope it will make an interesting pie, too; will report back.

Review:

First year to grow Kikuza. One vine made 3 squash, harvested at 88 days to try to beat the vine borers. After storing in doors 2 weeks, one was cut up, boiled, coursely mashed, and served with butter. Probably the best table squash I've ever had, even better than my standard Waltham butternut! Will be trying a full patch of them for fall planting, see if I can get a crop before cold weather.
