With its blueish skin and its bright orange flesh, this variety makes for a striking colour combination when served at a meal. I think the smooth, sweet flesh is best baked: try this cut into serving size wedges or pieces before cooking or slice in half and remove the seeds to reveal a cavity that is large enough to hold several servings of stuffing.

Lovely little fruits that can be picked when they are 200-400g, grapefruit sized and perfect for 1, thus this kabocha type is still growing when harvested.  So for a flavour revelation you need to ripen the fruit for 10-14 days and then store it for at least 6 weeks to attain the outstanding sweet smooth succulent deliciousness that this variety is rightly renowned for possessing.   A very choice variety.
