Fruit has a mild sweet flavor when harvested at about 6-8" long and the skin is still shiny. Although nearly all summer squashes are varieties of C. Pepo, Aehobak belongs to the species C. Moschata. Just like most of the other members of this species, Meot Jaeng is is vining variety reaching lengths 3 to 10 ft.
