4 gram heirloom seed package
This great Japanese heirloom was first introduced to the U.S. right here in the Bay Area.
The Oriental Seed Company of San Francisco offered it in 1927.
The skin is yellow-orange, ribbed and lightly wrinkled.
Kikuza's flesh is thick with a small seed cavity, sweet, tender and some say spicy.
Best picked when they reach 4-7 pounds.
Nice roasting and baking squash.
This little squash produced wonderfully on strong plants that resisted powdery mildew. It yielded all season long, even up to frost. The squash stored very well and were just the right size - bigger than a Thelma Sanders acorn squash and smaller than a seminole. It was about the size of Autumn Crown. I highly recommend growing these and saving the seeds.
