65 days. The 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 fruits 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. Very ornamental.

What are the pros? Cheap and easy to grow

What are the cons? Takes a long time to fruit,

Review:

Apart from an out of control vine and waiting for what seemed an eternity for fruit to appear, I was pleasantly surprised when my plants did. They store well so they are another bonus for the pantry. Great for baby food too.

Review:

I was excited to grow this squash based on description in the catalogue but after growing for two summers, it's now on my "hell no, I won't grow list". The first year, I planted straight in the ground and I was excited to see it take off and vine. Unfortunately, I only got one squash. The vine kept growing but even though I saw flowers, I just didn't get anymore fruit. I tried again the second year (a couple of seeds left from last year's pack), and I got the vine again, but not even one fruit. I never have difficulty with squash (zucchini, pattypan,etc) and figure that I'll rely on my sure things and give this one a pass.

What are the pros? Very healthy!

What are the cons? A bit bland taste

Review:

This squash was the only one (out of five or so different) I grew this summer that I actually got more than one squash from. After a chilly (or cold!) early season we were hit by warm, dry weather just as I went on vacation. I came back home to a dry squash patch that I watered and then left for another couple of weeks. Came back and it was dry again. To top it off I had planted everything way too tightly. Naturally everything was struck by mildew, and I only got one cucumber and one squash from each plant before they withered away, except for the Kamo Kamo that survived until fall and gave me three cute fruits that lasted until january (still one left). I didn't taste any young ones, but the mature ones are nice but a bit bland and not sweet compared to "normal" winter squash. And the peel is much more woody than it is in winter squash (after cooking). I still really like it. I will definitely grow it again!

Review:

My husband and I have been growing Kamo Kamo squash for several years. The plants are tough! They get blight, they keep going, they get attacked by squash bugs, cucumber beetles, stinkbugs, or whatever nature might throw at them....I am still going to get some Kamo Kamo squash! Even with the local, endless stomached ground hog...I still got a couple of Kamo's! . I like the young "summer squash' Kamo's a bit more than the "winter squash" Kamo's. The young squash are delicious. The mature squash have a nutty flavor, but not sweet. . IF there is anything that I dislike about the Kamo's, it the mature squash has a very hard shell. Puny me has to use a hammer and sturdy knife to open the things. (probably why the darn ground hog left me a Kamo Kamo or two for winter!) also, the vines are prickly, but no more so that many other winter squash or pumpkin vines. So, there will be Kamo Kamo's in my garden this year, and years to come! .

Is this the real kamo kamo ....? Kumi kumi is far longer than large... Fruits were round of a dize at 25 to 30 cm Some striped green and yellow, , some just yellow Looks like tonda padana squash....more round Delicious... One of the best for sure Taste great cut in half baked with fresh foie gras and smoked duck...a la francaise;)
