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.
