I have been searching for a source in which I may purchase seeds for Japanese Pie Squash. Locally, a lot of people have heard of it but cannot furnish seeds. Could you, would you provide me with a supplier of this squash.

I found somthing called a Japanese pumpkin or kabocha (botanical name either Cucurbita moschata or C. maxima). These are types of buttercup squash. There is one variety called 'Hokkori', also one called 'Honey Delight' which is described as a "large Japanese kabocha type". These are available from Johnny's, ph# 207-437-4395, web site www.johnnyseeds.com
