Calabaza de Castilla’s substitute

I want to make Calabaza Enmielada (I’m on holiday in AZ) but I can’t find calabaza de Castilla here. Does anybody know which other kind of squash would make a good substitute?


Get the squash with the hardest shell you can find.  A squash like a pumpkin won't work, the shell is too soft.  TBH, I don't know another squash with a shell as hard as that of the Castilla.  

Could you substitute camote enmielado on your menu instead?  I know it's not the same, but it's really delicious.
