Kabocha squash may not get the attention that Butternut and Acorn do, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less delicious!

What is Kabocha Squash?

Kabocha is a Japanese variety winter squash that’s also known as a Japanese Pumpkin. It’s hard on the outside and it resembles a squat pumpkin. 

So, what does the Kabocha squash taste like? 

The Kabocha has a sweet flavor, even sweeter than a Butternut squash. The taste can be be described as a cross between a pumpkin and a sweet potato. 

Kabocha is rich in beta carotene, iron, Vitamin C and potassium.
