Oriental Squash  (Oriental Pumpkin, Summer Squash)

Many summer squashes and winter squashes are very popular in the Orient, which are different to Western versions. Oriental Winter Squash is often called Little Pumpkin in the Orient. It is also called Japanese Squash or Chinese Squash in the supermarkets in the United States. Oriental winter squash is much smaller than the Western pumpkins. There are many types of Oriental squashes, that are different in the shape and color of the fruits. Oriental squash has shorter vines than the Western pumpkin and can be grown along the fence or on the ground. Plants grow vigorously in warm climates. The matured fruits of the winter squash should be cured under the sun for a few days when harvesting. Oriental winter squashes can be stored up to 6 months for later uses.

NOTE: Squash needs insects to carry out the pollinating process for setting fruits. If the insects are not available in your area, the pollinating process can be done manually, by picking up male flowers and transferring pollens to femal flowers (face-to-face touching the center part of flowers). This process should be carried out when flowering is active during the daytime.
