We are thrilled to unveil our latest addition to the MayFord family – F1 Hybrid Squash COLINKY! As the exclusive carriers of this exciting new Sakata variety, we proudly present a squash that not only brings exceptional flavour to your table but also adds a touch of charm to your garden.


The Cutest Squash Ever: Squash Colinky

F1 Hybrid Squash Colinky, scientifically known as Cucurbita maxima, is a true gem in the world of vegetables. Part of our Sakata Premier Selection series, this squash variety boasts an irresistible appeal. Imagine a squash that measures just 15cm across and weighs a mere 1 – 2kg – that’s Colinky! But don’t let its size deceive you, for within this adorable package lies a world of flavour and nutrition.


Delightfully Sweet with a Nutty Texture

Prepare to be amazed by Colinky’s exceptional taste profile. The nutty texture combined with a deliciously sweet flavour creates a culinary symphony that’s bound to impress even the most discerning palates. Whether you’re roasting it, grilling it, or incorporating it into your favourite dishes, Colinky promises to elevate your culinary creations to a whole new level.


Beauty Meets Functionality

Squash Colinky is not just a treat for your taste buds – it’s also a feast for your eyes. The uniformity and aesthetics of Colinky are unmatched. As the fruit matures, its rind takes on a deep orange hue that’s both visually striking and a testament to its ripeness. Slice it open, and you’ll be greeted by a vibrant, deep orange internal flesh that’s as inviting as it is appetizing.


Beyond the Plate: Colinky as an Ornamental Squash

The versatility of Colinky knows no bounds. Not only does it excel as a culinary delight, but it can also serve as a stunning decorative element. Let your Colinky grow to full maturity, and then watch as it transforms into an ornamental squash. Drying it for decorative purposes adds a touch of rustic charm to your living space, showcasing nature’s artistry in your home.


A Squash that Keeps on Giving

We understand the importance of produce that lasts, which is why Colinky is designed to store exceptionally well. This means you can savour the flavours of Colinky for an extended period, ensuring that your garden’s abundance continues to grace your table long after the harvest season.


At MayFord, we’re delighted to bring you this remarkable addition to our seed collection. Colinky isn’t just a vegetable – it’s a testament to nature’s diversity and the wonders it holds. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting, Colinky promises to bring joy to your gardening and dining experiences.
