Japanese Pumpkin (Cucurbita moschata) and Kabocha (Cucurbita maxima) are members of the cucurbit or pumpkin family. In Japan, kabocha is known as nutty flavoured pumpkin (in Japanese - Kuri Kabocha) and commands quite high prices. Fruits are small (1.5-2.0 kg). New hybrids of the two species have smaller fruit, due to the higher fruit set rate.
