Baby Delica, Hybrid

Cucurbita maxima


Baby Delica, Hybrid
Seed #340
This small kabocha, or Japanese pumpkin, weighs only about 2 lbs and is harvested when they are about 5" in diameter—just right for one meal. It is a smaller version of the well-known variety Delica. The skin ripens to a deep green with lighter green stripes, and the yellow-orange flesh has a nutty, sweet flavor. The short vines of this variety make it popular with home gardeners and commercial growers as each plant produces more fruit per square foot than many other types of squash. Whole fruit stores well.

Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Sow seeds in spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Hill planting: Form soil into a 1-ft. diameter mound 3-4" tall. Space mounds 5-10' apart. On each mound plant 1-2 seeds. Row planting: See spacing info in chart. Keep soil moist. Fertilize as needed. Hand pollination may be necessary. The vine can be trained to climb a vertical support for better air circulation and ease of harvest or leave to sprawl on the ground. After harvest, winter squash should be left in the sun for a few days to cure before storing.
