(C. moschata) Exquisite gem of traditional Japanese squash breeding! Fruits are oblate shaped, very deeply ribbed, with a rough texture and waxy bloom—the very picture of squash voluptuousness! Fruits start out green, upon maturity mellowing to medium brown. The fruits weigh a very practical 1-2 lbs, ideal for smaller families. The dark orange flesh is sweet and fruity tasting, with a nutty flavor, and fine grained—quality is very high. Keeping quality is excellent, too--fruits can be stored for up to 8 months!
