A rare open-pollinated Kabocha squash, Blue Kuri (or Blue Hokkaido) squash is a great choice for gardeners interested in seed saving. Fruits will grow to 2–3 lbs each—occasionally reaching up to 8 lbs—with a bluish-grey skin and sweet, thick, rich-tasting yellow-orange flesh. Great for storing through the spring, its thick skin is also edible. Overall very easy to grow; however, this color of squash is often irresistible to squash bugs. With some vigilance and under-leaf patrolling, you should be able to get several tasty squashes from this spreading vine.
Grown in Tennessee.
