A Kabocha-type squash with dark green, drum-shaped, .9-1.3 kg (2-3 lb) fruits. Thick flesh has very smooth texture and mild, sweet flavour. Fruits store up to 4 months. High-yielding compact vines are perfect for small gardens.

Planting Instructions

Squash plants are frost tender and must be planted when danger of frost is past. For earlier fruit, plant in 8 cm (3 in) jiffy pots or strips 3 to 4 weeks prior to intended date of transplanting to the garden. Plant the seed 4 cm (1 1/2 in) deep and keep the soil warm, 22 C (72 F). Space plants in the garden 1 m (3 ft) apart. Fertilize with 10-52-17 and liquid seaweed for strong healthy plants.
