Cucurbita moschata (105 days)
A heavily ribbed Japanese strain with bumpy green skin that turns more buff orange with a whitish bloom (reminiscent of that which forms on plums and some apples) in storage. It ripens fairly early for a moschata-type squash and is becoming renowned in “foodie” circles for its sweet flesh and thin skin. Some folks are even grating it raw into salads! Fruits grow heavy yields of 2 pound cheese wheel style fruits that store well. Very similar to Black Futsu.
