Also known as Japanese pumpkin, this squash is highly underrated in the U.S. Loaded with beta-carotene, vitamin A and a fraction of the calories found in other squashes, like butternut, kabocha is a delight to your tastebuds and a gift to your immune system! Popular in Thai curries and tempura dishes, this bright orange squash has edible skin, tons of dietary fiber and beautifying health benefits. Yum!

Selection Process

Look for vibrantlly green kabochas that are heavy for their size. Avoid any with cuts or bruises. Always choose organic.
