I’m cooking boiled kabocha.
Melons from the south are lumpy and orange, sometimes orange and green because they try to look like the hot sun. Wait, those aren't melons, they're pumpkins and squash. Or... kind of a mix of the two, if you already know what kabocha tastes like.
The reading for this is an exception, so here's a mnemonic to help you remember it:
Japanese pumpkins don't taste like American pumpkins. They taste more like canned boiled chocolate (かぼちゃ). Oh, you don't know that either? Well then just taste the pumpkin and you'll know what that tastes like too.
