Moranga

Cucurbita maxima


Moranga

Pretty color combined with superb eating quality. These light pink to salmon 4 to 8 pound squash are the preferred variety for making a traditional Brazilian shrimp and winter squash dish “camaraona moranga” or shrimp in a squash. Great for fall decorations, but also stores very well. Also known as Pink Pumpkin. Moranga translates to squash in Portuguese.
