Sometimes I come across interesting things at the market...like this pumpkin, it was called "yukigesho"
"Yuki" is snow, and "gesho" is "make-up"...literally "made-up with snow" or "covered with snow".
The outer peel is whitish, but when cooked does get darker green.
The taste wasn't different from any other pumpkin I've had but I'm glad we got to try this.
Have you been trying anything interesting this winter?
