A fantastic pumpkin variety producing "naked" seeds - seeds without shells. Very nutritious seeds are delicious raw or lightly roasted by themselves or in trail mix, granola, with dark chocolate, in stir fry with vegetables, or on salads. They contain a beneficial oil, 30% protein, high levels of B vitamins, vitamins A, C, K, calcium, copper, selenium, iron, and phosphorus. The flesh of pumpkins are a low calorie food high in fiber, vitamin A ,C, B, and B5, Omega 3 fatty acid, manganese, and copper. Stored properly they can keep for up to half a year; 50-60 degrees F in a dark place is ideal. To maintain purity of seed, naked seeded pumpkins like Kakai should not be grown in proximity to other squashes. If they are, then the seeds will have shells. In northern locations, starting seeds indoors may be helpful.
