Black Forest Kabocha Squash

Certified Organic Seed

Cucurbita maxima

Extraordinarily sweet, dry, cake-like flesh.

A uniform kabocha, with deep green skin and golden orange dense flesh. Plants produce about 4 fruits per plant, weighing 3-4 pounds each. Delicious roasted alone, or in soups; even the skin is tasty! One of the best tasting squashes we offer.

This lot was produced and processed in the Hudson Valley of New York State on our own certified organic seed farm, Four Fold Farm.

Direct sow after frost, or start indoors 2-3 weeks earlier. Transplant in hills spaced 6' apart, 3 plants per hill, or in rows 36" apart. Plants can grow 6' or more, so give plenty of space to take over. Mulch early to help suppress weeds. Harvest when skins thicken to a deep green, before any hard frosts. Cut the stem two inches above the fruit. Cure in a dry, warm place for a week or so, then store in a cool, dry, dark place.
