robin's koginut squash (12 seeds) $4.95 $9.99

Quantity

An arranged marriage between two of our favorite squash, this stately little pumpkin offers the best of both: sweetness, smooth texture, storability, yield and a built-in ripeness indicator to ensure it’s picked for peak flavor. 110 days to maturity.


Each Robin’s Koginut seed sold supports public plant breeding research at Cornell University. The creation of this variety was funded in part by a USDA-NIFA grant.

Details

Cucurbita moschata

This little pumpkin speaks to the power of pedigree. Developed by Michael Mazourek, it’s a cross between two squash varieties prized by cooks. With such distinguished parents, it’s no surprise that Robin’s Koginut stands out on the plate, with a flavor that’s sweet, intensely squash-y and totally delicious.

Even better, Robin’s Koginut has a built-in ripeness indicator. Fruit turn from green to bronze on the vine, so farmers know exactly when to pick for peak flavor and nutrition. (Could vine-ripened squash be the new vine-ripened tomato?)

Robin’s Koginut was named in memory of our friend Robin Ostfeld, a collaborator on the project and guru of organic farming in the Finger Lakes who had always wanted to name a new variety.

Our Robin’s Koginut seeds were produced in NY.

Growing

Days to Maturity
110 days

Appearance
— Ribbed squash approximately 6” in diameter, 2-4 lbs.
— Medium vine, 7-8' long

Field Notes
— Soil Requirements: Fertile, well-drained soils.
— Row Covers: Cover young plants to increase early growth and protect from insect pests. Remove covers at flowering to ensure pollination and fruit set.

Spacing After Thinning/Transplanting
— Plant spacing: 24”
— Row spacing: 7’

Direct Seeding
— Sow seeds ½” deep after last frost, when soil temperatures reach at least 70˚F.
— Sow 1-2 seeds every 24”; thin to one plant every 24”.
— 6-12 days to emergence.

Transplanting
— Start seeds indoors 2-3 weeks before last frost. Sow seeds ½” deep. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 85˚F.
— Move transplants outdoors to harden off gradually for 3-5 days, protecting seedlings from wind, strong sun, hard rain and cold.
— Transplant outdoors after last frost, when soil temperatures reach at least 70˚F. Do not disturb roots when transplanting.

Pest + Disease Info
— Insect Pests: Cucumber beetles, squash bugs and aphids. Pyrethrin, spinosad, soaps, row cover, or Blue Hubbard trap crops help prevent damage. Check undersides of leaves for eggs. Use best management practices such as crop rotation and removal of crop debris post-harvest to deter insect population growth.
— Diseases: Powdery mildew, fruit rots (anthracnose, scab, fusarium), bacterial wilt and viruses such as cucumber mosaic virus. Maintain good air circulation and schedule watering to allow plants to fully dry.

Harvest
Fruit turn from green to bronze on the vine; ready to pick when green is nearly gone. Harvest twice as fruit ripen for optimal yield and quality. (If in danger of frost, harvest all fruit.) Handle fruit gently to prevent damage.

Storage
Fruit store well after curing. Cure at about 80˚F for one week. Store at 50˚F, 50% relative humidity, with air exchange for best storage. Higher humidity, up to 70%, can extend storage. Plan to use all by March. Monitor storage for fruit loss.

Seed Specs
300 seeds/ounce; 4,800 seeds/pound.

Size Guide

In between sizes? Keep in mind that swim fabric expands! If you're in the water A LOT, select the smaller size for a supported, secure fit. If you're more likely to dive into a great book than a pool, choose the larger size for maximum comfort in the sun.

TORSO SIZING

Using a soft measuring tape, measure the length of your torso from your shoulder (where a bra strap typically lands) to between your legs (where the inseam of your pant legs meet). If you are over 30," you might prefer Andie long torso fit.

Some women know they have a long torso because one piece swimsuits tend to ride up or dig into the shoulders, or even feel too deeply scooped in the bust...If you are often adjusting the length of the suit (tugging and shifting) you may be a long torso fit!


Flat

Flat

Compressive lining
Four-way stretch expands to fit your curves comfortably and hug your smallest measurements
Supportive all around, for a secure fit feeling
Expands slightly in water -- great fabric for wearing in and out of water

Ribbed

Ribbed

Compressive lining with self rib that is more expandable
Four way stretch expands to fit your curves comfortably and hug your smallest measurements
Super flattering with texture stripe elongating and lengthening

Eco

Eco

Eco fabric is a blend of 87% Recycled Polyester (made from recycled post-consumer plastic) and 13% Spandex to mimic our Flat fabric's compression, stretch, and handfeel.

Bloom

Bloom

Bloom is a knit jacquard fabric made of 33% Nylon, 57% Polyester, and 10% Spandex, making it more delicate than our Flat and Ribbed fabrications. Bloom fabric will darken when wet, but return to original color after drying. This fabric runs true-to-size, but if you're not sure - stick with a size up.

Terra

Terra

Terra has an abstract, stone-like texture with the comfort and stretch of our classic Flat and Ribbed fabrications. This 97% Polyester, 3% Spandex fabric is double-lined, giving you flattering compression and control.
