Tohono O'odham "Ha:l"
A very heat tolerant and rapidly maturing squash from the Tohono O'odham Nation. Traditionally blossoms are mixed with wheat flour to make a porridge and seeds roasted for snacks. Prized for the immature fruits, "Ha:al mamat" ("children") which resemble zucchini. Mature fruits have light orange flesh, mild flavor, a starchy texture, and store well. The flesh can also be sun dried and boiled to resoften. A staff favorite! Approx. 5.0g/15 seeds per packet.
