What is this Pumpkin?

Edymnion(7a)January 10, 2012

Bought this at a grocery store as a "decorative" pumpkin along with a jarrahdale. I just now finished making the last pies out of the jarr, so its getting near time to chop this one up as well.

I am wondering just what exactly it is though. Has anyone seen this before that could ID it for me off the top of their heads? I'm planning on saving seeds from it, see if they'll grow true or not this year.

I believe that's a buttercup squash.

With the smaller button and heartlike shape, I'd say some kind of Kabocha.
