Septoria leaf and fruit spot, caused by the fungus Septoria cucurbitacearum, can be an important disease of certain cucurbits grown in the Northeast and Midwest. The fungus can infect the leaves of muskmelon, pumpkin, summer and winter squash (butternut, acorn, and processing “pumpkins” [actually squash]), and gourds and the fruit of pumpkin, butternut, acorn, and processing “pumpkins”.
Japanese Pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) and Kabocha (Cucurbita maxima) are members of the cucurbit or pumpkin family. In Japan, kabocha is known as nutty flavoured pumpkin (in Japanese - Kuri Kabocha) and commands quite high prices. Fruits are small (1.5-2.0 kg). New hybrids of the two species have smaller fruit, due to the higher fruit set rate.
