Black Futsu Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Black Futsu Squash (out of stock)

(C. moschata) A deep-orange, hazelnut-rich delight. A cousin of the butternut, these Japanese squash are a favourite with market gardeners for reliability, flavour, storage and uniqueness. Good resistance to cucumber beetles, producing a plethora of fruits through the drought and the beetles. They start out black (very dark green) and mature to orange when fully ripe. Any black fruit that has not turned a dusky orange by fall can be brought in to ripen indoors. Will keep for many months in storage. 20 seeds

Sweet Dumpling Squash - Annapolis Seeds - Nova Scotia Canada
Sweet Dumpling Squash
Price: $3.00

(C. pepo) One of my personal favourites. Small, flattened squash (imagine a cross between delicata and acorn) produced very heavily on short vines. The sweet dry flesh reminds me of roasted chestnuts. A single squash is the perfect size for one person; I like to simply halve them and bake them. The skin is tender enough to eat too. 20 seeds
