Kabocha Squash

         
 
4 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(C. maxima) A popular green-skinned Japanese squash that’s shaped like a buttercup, but without the “cup” on the bottom. Rich yellow-orange flesh is of excellent quality, being sweet, fine-textured and nutty tasting. "Perfect for baking and for making delicious pumpkin curries and breads. A leading type in much of Asia. One of the best eating squash of all time!

Review:

I have had a plot in a community garden in South Seattle for years. I deep-water into buried buckets once or twice a week. Of the five or six winter squash varieties I have grown, I’m sad to say that Kabocha develops powdery mildew sooner, and is more quickly and severely damaged by it, than is worth the space in my garden. Luckily, it’s readily available and inexpensive at local produce stands, so I can still enjoy it, while growing more robust varieties.

Review:

I had only one plant of this variety but next year I will plant more. My grandson is studying Japanese so I gave him my first small squash from my garden. He put a tag on it and set it on his desk as a decoration. Cute. I'm glad someone shared these awesome seeds from Japan. I like that the vines did not take over the garden and grow out of control like the spaghetti squash. There was no problem with bugs or any disease and today ( December 11) I found another small one in the garden. The fruit is very good and I like that the size is small, just enough for me for a couple of meals. I roast them in my Oster turkey roaster oven and then grill them in butter and eat with eggs at breakfast, instead of potatoes. I got about 5 or 6 from my one vine. They are very good. Grow some.

Review:

President of our local garden club shared some of her 2014 seeds with me. I planted them in 2017 and got 30 fruits from 10 plants. Easy to grow, but must be kept well watered during hot temps of July/Aug. Stores well after curing. --still enjoying into Jan and Feb! Terrific flavor.

Review:

Grew this squash in 2014 and 2015. Prolific and flavorful. No problems with bugs. Benefits from weekly irrigation. Stores well after curing. Versatile in that it can be baked, boiled, broiled, pureed into creamy soups, or used in pies. Average weight is between 3 to 5 pounds. Yes, the vines may be trellised!.
