FAQs about buttercup squash
No, these are two different types of squashes. As opposed to the squat, green buttercup squash, the butternut squash is shaped like a bowling pin and has a yellow-tan rind. You can also eat the rind of the butternut squash, as it's far softer, sweeter, and thinner than that of the buttercup squash.
Kabocha is a close relative of the buttercup squash. They both have a dark green color, but the rind of the buttercup squash is smoother, while the rind of the kabocha has ridges and bumps. The most distinguishing difference lies in their shapes, as the buttercup squash has a boxier and squatter shape than the round kabocha. In addition, the stem of the kabocha is harder and less squishy than that of the buttercup squash.
There are also differences in their flesh. That of the buttercup is a bright yellow with a soft texture, while the kabocha has orange flesh with a denser texture. For this reason, kabocha chunks tend to keep their shape better when cooked than those of the buttercup squash. Lastly, kabocha has a more nuanced and distinctive taste.
Apart from its sweet and flavorful taste, the buttercup squash provides many vitamins, such as vitamins A and C, beta-carotene, and loads of fiber. They are also a good source of carotenoids, which are nutrients that improve eye health and night vision.
