I have some seeds I picked up at a local oriental food store for "Hybrid
Squash, King Ka Ae F1". The seeds are from the Asia Seed Co, Seol, Korea. I
bought them and am currently growing them. I choose them just to try
something different. If you go to , select the
seventh entry under "Shopping Category", you see a page with different
squaash types. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, you see  ,
indicating two pages. Select the . Scroll to bottom. The lower left
picture shows three zuchinni-type green squash. The site and seed packet are
all in Korean and I've not had much luck translating. I asked at the store,
but the young man there didn't know anything about them except that he
thought they were known as "Korean Pumpkin".
So, they are a vining squash plant, prolific. I picked the fruit at about
eight inches, they look just as pictured on the web site and see packet.
They taste like pumpkin or winter squash - not at all like a summer squash.
Anyone know anything about these? How they are grown, how they are eaten?
Harvested small, big, etc.?
I can take pics of the plants in my garden and post them if anyone wants to
