Futsu Kurokawa Squash

1 Review | Write a Review
(C. moschata) A very ancient Japanese variety, this dusty green moschata is no longer popular in Japan. We are excited to offer this piece of ancient Japanese culinary heritage! The fruits are ribbed and almost black (kurokawa means black in Japanese) and almost perfectly round. Try this incredible ancient squash in soups, pies and more!

What are the pros? Very vigorous, and hearty

What are the cons? A bit tough to get started


Had a hard time getting the seeds to start and get growing, out of a whole pack of seeds planted I had maybe just shy of one quarter begin to grow. But, the result was okay in the end. The few surviving plants really took off and produced more pumpkins than I had anticipated. They withstood a bit of harsh weather and a few intervals of heavy rain and wetness. Didn't have a single one succumb to rot. Upon harvest, I even discovered several completely hidden among thick grass around the edge of my patch. They had matured and were absolutely fine. A pleasant surprise as other varieties that I've had this happen to usually are pulled out and are bad. Due to space I had to plant a zucchini nearby, none of them suffered cross pollination. I've had that problem in the past with other varieties as well. Overall, well worth a little struggle. The taste is mild, nutty, and pinch sweet.
