Ambercup squash (aka Amber Cup, aka Red Kabocha) looks like a small, slightly-flattened pumpkin.
It has an orange shell with tan blotches, a white cap and slightly-indented tan ribs.
The squash grow to be about 20 cm (8 inches) wide by 12 ½ cm (5 inches) tall, and weigh 1 ⅓ to 1 ¾ kg (3 to 4 pounds.)
Inside, the squash has a large cavity,
The orange, finely-textured flesh is sweet and dense, and not watery. The texture and flavour is similar to that of acorn squash and kabocha squash.
The squash grows on vines that spread a great deal and need guidance, but they can be trained to grow up a trellis.
100 days from seed.
Very hard rind on it, so tackle it carefully so that your knife doesn’t slip on you. The cavity inside is easily cleaned.
