Japanese chestnut pumpkin (Potimarron)
The potimarron is a kind of pumpkin which originated in Asia. It's shaped like a very large pear, with a hard reddish-orange skin.
It is different from the classic pumpkin, especially in 2 respects: the skin is edible, and its flavour - which is rather like chestnut - is stronger. If you intend to buy: See the seasons calendar about it.
Potimarrons weight about 2-3 kilos each, they can be kept several times until they are open or cut. If you want to use it: See this page.
