Often referred to a "Tetsu" this vaiety is a delicious cross between Butternut & Kabocha squashes and was bred in Japan during the middle of last century. The translation of the Japanese name is “iron helmet,” after the famed hardness of its rind. It stores well - up to 6 months! And its flavor gets better and better over time. Store as you would any other winter squash.
