Purchased from Kitazawa Seed Co. on July 2011.
From the retailer’s website:
This Japanese kabocha variety is an All American Selections Winner. It has a very distinct bush-like growing habit with single vine with almost no branching. The fruits set close to the center allowing more plants for a small growing area making it an excellent choice for home gardens. The fruits are semi-globe shaped weighing about 2.5 lbs. The skin is smooth, dark green and has pale green stripes. Flesh is deep yellow and is sweet and nutty with dry texture. The winter squash stores fairly long. Used in tempura, stir-fry, baked and cooked in dashi (see recipes).
Maturity: Approx. 45-50 days after flowering
Planting season: Late spring to early summer
