SQUASH, Chinese Tropical Pumpkin
Seeds per pack ~ 20
Germination: 89% (Jan. 2023), Packed for 2023
From our good friend Edmund Frost of Common Wealth Seed Growers in Virginia, who says this about this wonderful squash: "Chinese Tropical Pumpkin is sweet and amazingly rich, with high dry matter and brix readings, bright orange interior and a nutty flavor. At harvest, fruits are a mottled mix of pink, green and blue, with a white bloom (like the white outer layer on some blueberries). During storage they ripen to a deep tan color. The ribbed pumpkins average 4.5 pounds. This seedstock originates from a Taiwanese hybrid called Crowning. We got seeds from Glen Teves of Hawaii. We’ve been selecting for flavor, eating quality, productivity and downy mildew resistance (which is very good). Not a long keeper. Plan on using the squash in the fall, before the end of the year."
