It is similar to Winter Squash (Cucurbita maxima 'Sweet Meat') but not exact. @farmerdill knows, I'd wager.

Thanks Dave. I buy some Sweet Meat each fall as my family loves it. Have one on the porch right now. This squash is smaller and rounder. Looks a little like a small hubbard.

Concur; It has the appearance of Sweet Meat. There is a smaller one named Sweet Mama, but There are too many of these kabocha types to definitely put a name to it. Delica and Baby Delica are similar kabocha types that are grown commercaily in the US. http://vegtrials.blogspot.com/2012/12/winter-squash-taste-te...

Thanks Farmerdill.....I saw a similar squash today that was labeled Kabocha. I really enjoy seeing the variety of squash, pumpkins, and gourds in the fall.
