Description

A favourite in the Autumn months, this wonderful gourd grows on a vine and is technically a fruit! It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to a pumpkin. It has tan-yellow skin and orange fleshy pulp with seeds. When ripe, it turns increasingly deep orange, and becomes sweeter and richer.

Simply chop, cover in olive oil, salt and lashings of black pepper and roast in the oven with garlic. Alternatively use in a soup to keep you warm on a winters night! It can also be used in breads, muffins and pies.
