Heritage Status: New Zealand
Bio-Region of Origin: Ahipara

Description: Also known as Tahitian Squash in overseas catalogues. Vince Eales of Ahipara sent us this cultivar that has been in his family for over 100 years and originally came via South Africa. In the North it is often known as a Dali pumpkin. These are remembered by a few old timers. They have really long necks so they are great for cutting off slices and baking. They are c.moschatas like the Butternuts and Chucks Winter, and have similar flesh; deep orange and very very sweet. The ends that the seeds are in are good for stuffing.
