A medium-sized (2-4 lb), round, flattened Kabocha/Hokkaido type winter squash with an attractive slate blue skin. The rich orange flesh has a pleasant dry, flaky texture and an exceptionally sweet and nutty flavor. A favorite among our tasters! Stella Blue is particularly high yielding for this type of winter squash.

Bill has been selecting for fruits with minimal "buttons" on the blossom end, which means longer storagability. -Steve Peters
