Only in Japan..
It's a unique white pumpkin capped with orange beret which grown in a plastic greenhouse at a farm in the Gifu Prefecture city of Takayama. It's quite different from the ordinary Japanese Pumpkin or Kabocha. As the color and shape don't change even after one year fom harvesting, the 'Fuku Pumpkins', which are as big as a baby's head and weight about 700 grams, are popular among tourists and sold at the city's famous mornig market in Miyagawa district.
