A variety of winter squash, which is sometimes referred to as an Oriental pumpkin, that has the appearance of a small pumpkin in shape and color. It ranges in size from one to three pounds. The outer flesh is thick and as the squash matures, it changes from a glossy orange to a duller orange appearance, which indicates that it is ready to harvest. The meat inside is pale yellow in color and limited in volume, but it provides a somewhat bland to sweet flavor when cooked. This squash is best when baked whole without removing the seeds. It can only be stored in a cool dry area for 6 to 8 weeks.
