かぼちゃは日本には1573年頃にポルトガルから伝来し、日本中に広がったといわれています。

Made by Tsuge.
Pumpkin was introduced to Japan from Portugal around 1573 and is said to have spread throughout Japan.
In addition, the winter solstice has a culture of eating pumpkin as a lucky charm, which is a winter tradition along with Yuzu.
Like the chrysanthemum pumpkin that was born in Japan, each bunch extends out, giving off a unique force and freshness.
