Kakai Squash (Hull-less Seeds) - Seeds


Latin name: Curcubita pepo

The Kakai squash is native to Austria and grown for its oil-rich seeds. If you like pumpkin seeds but hate having to shell them, the hull-less seeds of the Kakai are for you! 

The hull-lesss seeds are edible, as is the flesh of the squash. Mainly grown for the seeds, the flesh has a neutral and very light flavour, in between a zucchini and pumpkin. It can be used to add grated or stewed to breads, muffins and veggie "meatballs" without altering the flavour, and to soups containing other more flavourful vegetables.

In the fall, just before the first frost, harvest the large dark green fruits (5-8lbs) and continue to ripen them indoors until they turn orange color with beautiful green stripes. Once they reach this stage, harvest the seeds. Simply split in half, wash and dry the seeds and store in an airtight container (no need to roast!)
