Winter Squash 'Black Forest Kabocha'


(C. maxima)When we grew for market, come fall everyone would go gaga for the sweetness of the delicata, the thick rich flesh of the butternut, the classic beauty of a stuffed acorn. We would quietly smile and nod knowing we had a pile of kabocha at home to get us through the winter. The classic squash of Japanese cuisine, it is for those who value richness over sweetness. Squat round 3-4lb squashes roast up to a lovely flakey texture, and the flavor… rich nutty deliciousness with just the perfect amount of sweet. One of our favorite fall dishes is a simple kabocha soup with the roasted dark green skin chopped up, fried crisp, and sprinkled over the top. Small-medium vines produce 3-4 squashes per plant. Our favorite winter squash, it could be yours too.
