Blue Kuri Squash

Certified Organic Seed

Cucurbita maxima

A delectable favorite with dry, cake-like flesh.

Kabocha squash has always been a delectable favorite, but most varieties on the market and in seed catalogs are hybrids -- we don't offer hybrid varieties since you can't save seed from them. In our search for the open-pollinated kabocha, we came across Blue Kuri. It started with a simple trial, and ended up as an obsession.

The big, beautiful vines need a lot of room to grow, and only yield 1-3 ripe, blue squash per plant, but each one is a treasure. Limited availability.
