Hawaiian Pumpkins and Local Food

Rare Ugandan squash seeds flourish in Hawaii, leading to a partnership with a local restaurant.

Hawaiian squash does well in Missouri summers and stands up well to pests and disease. Their rock hard rind makes them attractive as decoration and a great keeper, yet they are delicious for the table. Thai Rai Kaw Tok Pumpkins are becoming popular with chefs in 5-star restaurants for their unique flavor and creamy buttery texture.
