Organic Hokkaido Pumpkin 650g Holland
Highlights: Organic Hokkaido Pumpkin (Cucurbita Maxima) is also known as Red Kuri squash (ウチキクリ), due to its intense red-orange colour. Traditionally available in October, it arrives ready for Halloween. Like other varieties of pumpkin it is packed with fibre and carotenoids as well as minerals and water-soluble B and C vitamins.
The flesh tastes a little like sweet chestnuts and can be used both for desserts in cakes, muffins, pies and savoury in soups and casseroles. It bakes well and once the seeds are removed from the cavity can be stuffed with either sweet or savoury contents.
