SQ807A - Shokichi Green Mini Kabocha
C. maxima. Compact vine forming plants produce five to seven fruits each with grey-green skins patterned with light grey streaks. The sweet flesh is bright orange with fine texture and a flavour reminiscent of roasted chestnuts when baked. The single-serving fruits average 350g (¾ lb) each. Shokichi Green Mini Kabocha performed really well in ourfield trials, alongside its sister product, Shokichi Red. The fruits had an appealing kabocha shape, with a good ratio of flesh to seed cavity. We also noticed a very high rate of successful pollination, with apparently no aborted fruits.

How To Grow
The three species of squash that we offer represent a wide variety of shapes and colours. Each will cross-pollinate readily within their species. For instance, all C. pepo will cross-pollinate with each other, but not with C. maxima or C. moschata. For people who want to save their seeds, this is a very important consideration. The fruits themselves will not be affected by cross pollination, but the seeds inside will be, so squash need to be grown in isolation from other members of their species if seed saving is the goal.
