Squash 'Black Futsu'

*Heirloom*
(C. Moschata) This small, bumpy, heavily ribbed Japanese squash is gaining in popularity, showing up at more and more farmers markets and produce departments, and for good reason. Fairly early for a moschata family squash it has a very smooth, fine grained flesh and a fruity flavor at harvest that lends itself to thinly sliced raw or pickled preparations. The fruitiness takes on a nutty depth in storage, and is excellent roasted in wedges or battered and fried as tempura. With its very edible thin skin, it doesn’t require peeling. Productive vines have a medium sprawl and very heavy fruit set. The dark green fruits ripen to a remarkable buff tawny blushed bluish color and develop a thin white film known as “bloom” on the surface. Highly recommended.
