Zapallo Loche

The Zapallo Loche (winter squash) comes in a variety of shapes, colors and sizes. It has a hard uneven skin and bright orange-yellow flesh. The flavor is similar to that acorn squash and it could be used for either of these.

Zapallo loche is one of the principle ingredients to make locro, and ancient Peruvian stew made in the same way today as it has been for centuries.
