Kabocha is the name used for 'squash' in Japan where it is widely available and it is very popular in USA and Australia. It is gaining in popularity in the UK too!

Indoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained, humus rich soil in a sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds that can cause damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow:
March to May.
How to Sow:
Sow seeds vertically 1cm deep in a small pot. Place in propagator/cover with glass or polythene bag until the seedlings appear (usually 5-8 days). When the seedlings have 2/3 leaves transplant into 2L pots and grow on for a few more weeks. In mid-late May (a week before transplanting) dig a large hole 30cm square for each squash plant (50cm apart, in rows 50cm apart) and fill with lots of well-rotted manure. Make a mound and cloche to warm soil up. Harden off the squash plants for 3-4 days before transplanting out into centre of mound. Keep covered with cloche for a week or so and water well. Can also be grown in greenhouse soil provided it is very fertile and kept moist.
Care:
Feed every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but try not to wet the fruit. Once growing, lift the squash off the soil onto a piece of wood or upturned terracotta pot to allow air to circulate and the squash to ripen.
Harvest: Late July to October. Pick any remaining fruits before the first frosts. These can be stored in frost-free conditions and can last several months.

Outdoor Sowing Information

Site:
Well drained, humus rich soil in a sheltered sunny spot out of way of strong winds that can cause damage to the large leaves.
When to Sow:
May to June.
How to Sow:
Squash are hungry feeders so to give them a good start outside, dig a hole 30cm square and fill with well rotted manure and mound the soil up and cloche the area a week before direct sowing. Plant 2 seeds into the centre of each mound (1cm deep, spacing 50cm apart, in rows 50cm apart) and cloche again until the seedlings grow. Remove the weaker seedling, and remove cloche a couple of weeks later. Seed will not germinate until the temperature is consistently above 13°C. Keep well watered.
Care:
Feed every 14 days with a potash rich fertiliser. Keep well watered but try not to wet the fruit. Once growing, lift the squash off the soil onto a piece of wood or upturned terracotta pot to allow air to circulate and the squash to ripen.
Harvest: Late July to October. Pick any remaining fruits before the first frosts. These can be stored in frost-free conditions and can last several months.
