Hamlet Squash is a squash grown for its hull-less seeds, which are pressed into pumpkin oil.
The seeds range in colour from white to light-green. There are not many seeds per squash, but there is a high oil yield per seed.
The squash is round, though a bit flattened on top. It has a mottled pale orange and green rind, with some darker green bands.
The squash will weigh an average of 2.5 to 4 kg (5.5 to 9 pounds.)
The squash flesh itself is pretty tasteless and not worth eating, but it can be fed to livestock, etc.
Hamlet Squash originated in the Ukraine.
