Kabocha Squash - Japanese Pumpkin

densiemillAugust 14, 2012

Anyone else planted these this year. I just discovered it so decided to plant some seeds and voila. Am I too late to reap the benefits though? Picture of first one is enclosed. Another is on the same vine. I have an unrban garden so had to plant in a container.

Too late? This is my first year for growing these & mine are at about the same growth state as yours. I planted Sunshine & the literature states it takes 95 days. So that means mine should be ready in early November, which should be just perfect here in north Mississippi. You being in Ga leads me to think you too have timed this correctly. My goal is to harvest my pumpkins & different winter squash before Thanksgiving.

Makes perfect sense. Mine should be ready in that timeframe as well
