It may be a false tale but it is said that the growers of this Pumpkin could not figure out a proper name for it, so they opted for the simple acronym name of JAP which stands for Just Another Pumpkin. The Jap pumpkin is similar to Sweet Potato in texture and flavour. It has a nutty flavour which is ideal for roasting and making cakes.
