Absolutely no added sugars, sodium or refined starches. No use of chemically synthesized fertilizers and pesticides. Strictly controlled and audited this product carries the Japanese certified organic JAS mark. Free of preservatives and artificial additives. Gluten-free and allergen-free.
A convenient and nutritious addition to your shopping list, the kabocha is organically grown, quick-frozen to preserve flavor and cook up in minutes. Kabocha has a sweet flavor, even sweeter than butternut squash similar in texture and flavor to a pumpkin and sweet potato combined. The rind is edible. In Japan, kabocha is commonly utilized in side dishes and soups, or as a substitute for potato or other squash varieties. Add olive oil and seasoning, then bake in the oven. Otherwise, use the cuts as is, add to a pressure cooker for 15-20 minutes for a soft and creamy texture.

Translated from Japanese: Delivery finally arrived about 20 minutes late. The call center was open until 9:00 p.m., so I called just in time to get a call back from the driver, and it finally arrived. I had been looking forward to receiving it, so I was relieved when it finally arrived.
Translated from Japanese: I bought this to make homemade food for my dog.
I have never tasted such delicious pumpkin.
I will order again because the pesticide-free pumpkins are out of season now.
Translated from Japanese: It’s convenient being able to use organic pumpkin easily.
Too bad there are sometimes shabby pumpkins mixed in.
I’d be happy if all the pumpkins were plump and sweet.
Translated from Japanese: Easy to prepare and safe to eat.
It will become my regular product.
Translated from Japanese: I've been eating products from New Zealand that I usually buy at the grocery store, and my impression is that these have a different sweetness! I'll keep getting these, because I feel more comfortable eating Japanese products!!
