Product Description

Kabocha is an Asian variety of winter squash of the species Cucurbita maxima. In some cultures it is revered as an aphrodisiac. Kabocha is commonly called Japanese pumpkin, especially in Australia and New Zealand. Kabocha squash is an excellent source of beta-carotene, owing to it’s bright orange flesh, which can be converted to vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A is important for healthy white blood cells, good immunity and for vibrant eyes, skin and hair. A single serving of kabocha squash provides 70% of the day’s recommended requirement.
