Organic Kabocha pumpkins from Magic Organics Co.
A limited time offer for this seasonal vegetable.
Some call it Kabocha squash. It is a dark green skin pumpkin with bright orange flesh.
Kabocha means pumpkin in Japanese and this will be the typical pumpkin that Japanese adopt in their recipes.
It has a rich and creamy texture that rides along with a sweet note. It can be mistaken for a dessert (without added sugar). In fact, it contributes to some desserts or sweet breads.
Kabocha pumpkins are very easily cooked and the skin is edible too. As this is an organic kabocha pumpkin, we do recommend eating it with the skin to stretch out the benefits!

This is where your vegetables were grown.
Magic Organics Co veggies start their life on their farm in Qingyuan, Guangdong. MOC has 60,000 square meters of farmland perched up in the mountains, with direct access to clean water and fresh air - an ideal location for veggies to flourish.
For MOC, the search for the perfect land started in 2007 until they hit the jackpot; access to roads, labour, fresh water, away from major highways and of course, clean soil. MOC soil is free from toxic chemicals and heavy metals. There's no one above their farmland (they are located on a casual 45 minute drive up a mountain!) so there's no run-off from other farms.
MOC's farm was certified organic in 2012 and has maintained the certification every year since then. In other words, they never failed the test. You can shop with confidence in the safety of MOC produce.
Today, MOC serves families in Hong Kong by providing the best seasonal vegetables available through our pick up and home delivery service.
