It is generally believed that all squash originated in Mesoamerica, but may have been independently cultivated elsewhere, albeit later. The Hokkaido Pumpkin, also called ‘’Red Kuri’’originates from Japan. It is also known as ‘’Potimarron’’ in France or ‘’Onion Squash’’ in the UK.
Squashes are filled with Vitamins C and B which, as antioxydants, help preventing aging of skin, hair and nails as well as improving the immune system and fighting inflammations. Potassium, in good concentrations, helps memory retention, bone and muscle strength. The large seeds are high in oil and protein. Finally, their dietary fibres improve digestion and slow the rate of sugar absorbed into the bloodstream.
