This is the same squash as "Bungkan," just an alternate spelling. I had better luck with it; as Farmerdill noted the plants do run all over creation. But I had pretty good yields with around four fruits per plant; the plants took a bit of a break during the hottest few weeks of the summer, then started setting again. Two are now forming 12 feet up my plum tree. :)

A 1-3 lb squash originating in Thailand. Fairly early (80-90 days) Yellow-orange flesh. Performed better than others of this type but still sparse production of two fruits per plant. Very uniform in size and shape. Plants are vigorous and run run all over creation, reaching 25 feet in length. For me they take up way too much space for the yield.
