Description: Very similar to Zambesi Gem, but obviously originally from Zimbabwe. These small (large orange size) round pumpkins came with our ancestors on the early ships, and were picked up in South Africa on the way around the cape! They are sweet, but moist and nutty, and well worth trying. Zimbabwe squash skins stay green when mature.
