The unique Japanese pumpkin that was developed in the Bunka era of the Edo period (1804-1818). This is one of our rarest and most historic new varieties! The fruit are uniquely shaped, like a bottle gourd and are ribbed and very warty. They are dark green, turning to tan at full maturity. The fine-grained flesh has a delicious nutty flavor. Traditionally believed to keep people from getting paralysis if eaten in the hottest part of summer. Shishigatani pumpkin is a famous vegetable in Kyoto cuisine. Very rare.
