ISO kabocha squash

Hey folks, do you know where I can reliably get kabocha squash, preferably in the west end?

I've found that both the Loblaws and Freshco near me use "kabocha" and "buttercup" interchangeably, even though they're not really the same (and I'm not a huge fan of buttercup).

    Any recent sightings? Also west end-ish?

        I agree... I just found them at T&T supermarket for 50 cents per pound. The taste was much better than the buttercup at Superstore and Loblaws. It was a sweeter meat and creamier than the buttercup.
