Kabocha; (Cucurbita Maxima)

A round, pumpkin-shaped squash (popular in Japan) - about 30cm/12 ins in diameter when mature. Dark green ridged skin envelopes yellow flesh and a large seed cavity. They taste rather like a cross between a pumpkin and a sweet potato - being good grated into salads, baked or steamed. In Japan, they are sometimes served as a dessert, with a little added sugar or some coconut milk. They sometimes go under the names 'Delica', 'Ebisu' or 'Hoka'
