Rumbo Squash is flattened, with heavy ribbing, and a dull caramel-orange coloured rind that looks a bit waxed.
Most people would look at this squash and tend to call it a pumpkin instead of a squash, and in fact, it can be used as an ornamental.
It grows to be 5 to 7 inches (12 1/2 to 18 cm) tall by 12 inches (30 cm) wide, and is very heavy for its size, weighing 14 to 15 pounds (6 to 6 1/2 kg.)
Inside, it has dense, golden, sweet, nutty, finely-textured flesh.
The plant is a hybrid, vine-type one. The vine can grow 4 inches (10 cm) a day.
95 to 100 days from seed.
The flesh cooks up very smooth.
Stores well. The waxy veneer helps to improve its storage life.
Rumbo Squash was developed in South Korea.
